I believe Walker Bros are going to be selling off a few wheels from the 1 August, might be worthwhile keeping an eye on their website.

From an aero perspective having the best aero rear disc isn’t really important, just try and get the stiffest, lightest you can afford. The FFWD is probably the best value and will fit most frames as it’s lenticular but not too wide. There are some good deals on the Mavics at the moment, if you want to spend more, perhaps they’re bringing out a new model.

Gipiemme had a weird one a few years ago. I tried their website and google. There's no trace of it online, but it had small triangular or trapezoid shaped cutouts(?) in the disc. Might have been just a front wheel.

It's listed as both front and rear. Wierd looking wheel.

Just an update for those at home...

I ended up with a new ZIPP 808/Super 9.
Also fitted new scatto bars and prologo seat.

Cheers for the help

The new finish on the Scattos makes them look a lot more like the eBay knock-offs. While at first I didn't really like the glossy finish and graphics on my Scattos, I'm not sure if I like the matte finish more or less.
