With some careful comparison and measuring you might be able to bolt that Final Driven Flange to an existing shaft drive wheel that has the number of spokes you're looking for.
Thanks for this info. I have been considering trying to get a CX500 wheel and seeing if I can swap the drive flange from the 650 wheel over it. That would be my cheapest solution, so I think I'm going to give it a shot. Otherwise, I think I'll have Buchanan's make me a 52-spoke hub and have it laced up with the correct offset. Then, at least I could have a matching front wheel and choose a rear rim size to maximize my tire choices.
