    If the HR came with V-brakes, then most likely you will need a hub that is compatible with 6-bolt/centerlock rotors. Check to see if your hub already has mounting braces for the rotors or not. Other than that, you just need to obvious- calipers, levers, housing, cable/fluid.

    Yes, you do need a disc hub. Most people go to a disc up front... Most of your stopping power comes from the front end and a disc offers more control
