    DT Swiss 340 hub compatibility for disc brakes

    Can you use the following hubs for avid bb7 disc brakes,

    It has the 6 bolt adaptor but I don't see how the rotor would attach to the hub?

    Help please.

    Thanks.

    I believe that's a centerlock compatible disc hub. This is the standard defined by Shimano where the rotor is placed onto the splined part of the hub and tightened down with a lockring, similar to how a cassette is mounted. There is an adapter that will fit onto the splines that will add the IS compatible bolt holes.

    Mate, why not just get the 340 with 6 bolt interface.

    If you feel the need to get the center lock hubs, you can get this adaptor to run normal 6 bolt rotors
