    Brake disc rivet vs bolt on? Is there a conversion?

    My 2008 Brodie Mettle has Mavic hubs (crossride wheels) and shimano brakes. I noticed that my discs are riveted to a disc and appears to attach to the hub with a screw-in disc like a freehub body. So I guess this means I can't use my discs on a hub that has bolts for the discs?

    You have center lock rotor/hub.
    You can't use center lock rotors on 6 bolt hubs, but you can use 6 bolt rotors on centerlock hubs with adapters.

    Ok thanks. Figured that out. So if I want to use new wheels and/or hubs with six bolt I need new rotors. Bummer for testing new wheels, but I guess I would need rotors for each wheel set eventually whether I keep em or sell em.
