    Attn: Paul Disc Unit Users

    Hey all, got a query for you. Is the disc unit compatible with other hubs too, or just the paul WORD's? It's not clear to me what it's mounted to on the hub, is it a spacer bracket on the axle? Can I use it for, say, an XT disc rear?

    Thanks.

    The Disk Unit threads onto the WORD axle in place of the "locknut" (not really a locknut). Not designed to be used on any other hub. I thought this, from the Tech section of the Paul site, was pretty clear
    IMPORTANT! Read this first:
    The Disk Unit will fit only the PAUL DiskWORD hub.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Oh, yeah...

    Yeah, I didn't get that far, my bad. What do you do if you have a frame that will take a geared rear wheel, but only has the paul disc unit mount on the stay? Is it back to canti's?

    For instance

    On a particular Kelly RoShamBo I'm eyeing, it has KM style, horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger. It also has only a PAUL disc unit mount on the stay, not an IS disc mount. If you were to run this frame geared, how would you mount the caliper?

    I think Woodman has a gearie hub and axle disc mount combo.

    You can probably use a Brake Therapy adapter too, and any BT compatible hub. With both the Woodman and BT, you'll need to modify the torque arm (shorten it) to fit the Kelly.
