    New Hub - Centerlock or 6 Bolt

    I am having a new wheel built. The rotor I am using is a ISO 6 bolt. I have a DT Swiss adaptor already.

    So, do I go centerlock or 6 bolt.

    What are the pros and cons of each?

    Thanks for the help.
    It's not the falling that hurts, it is the sudden stop at the bottom!

    Centerlock is quick and easy to remove.

    6 bolt has a broader range of adjustment (use of spacers between the rotor and the hub).

    My favorite hubs only come in 6 bolt.

    Some argue that there are weight savings to be had.

    As Will said...

    all of my favorite hubs only come in 6 bolt. But if you want the versatility to go either way, then go with the centerlock hub and use the adaptor if you are currently using 6 bolt rotors. If you don't ever plan on using brakes that use a centerlock then it's pretty much a waste of time. But if there might be a Shimano centerlock brake set in your future then it'd be worth it I suppose.
