    i must need some kind of adapter to mount rotors??

    building my first mountain bike, so i have never messed with disc brakes.

    i went with avid bb7 and have bontrager race x lite wheels...they SAID disc specific but i there are no threaded holes to mount the rotors.

    on both wheels on the non drive side it looks like there could be some kind of adapter or something to mount the rotor???

    i guess im lost =(

    according to the Bontrager website those wheels use centerlock hubs ... you can get an adapter to go from center lock to 6 bolt to mount your rotors

    like these

    there are 2 type of rotors ... 6 bolt and centerlock ... you can adapt centerlock to 6 bolt but not 6 bolt to centerlock ... or you can just buy some centerlock rotors and they will mount to your hubs

    So Centerlock rotors can't be adapted to fit 6-bolt hubs?
    Peace outside
