    Hi forum
    I used to ahve BMX with solid disc wheels when I was a kid, and thought it was the coolest looking thing ever.
    Now I've grown up and got a road bike, I got to thinking about getting a rear disc wheel for it - purely for aesthetic reasons you understand.
    Can anyone recommend me a place I can pick up a comparatively cheap rear wheel - or perhaps even better some clip on discs? (if these exist)
    Have been trawling the internet and can only find military-grade carbon discs for £1500+ - now I'M looking for something under the £100 mark... I'm not hugely bothered about the extra weight as a lot of the components on my bike are somewhat substandard, and I'm only a cyclo commuter/enthusiast really...
    Also am UK based.
    Thanks in advance
    Mongrel

    They suck when riding in side winds or when being passed by huge trucks going the opposite direction. You'll also look like a fred.
