Why on earth would you want one with the ready availability of good disk hubs for pennies?

That's what I was thinking - if you have to un-lace half the wheel and rebuild it, why not just go the whole hog and swap the hub while you're at it? It's not going to take much more time.

I can think of 1 far fetched reason to use them:

You can fit them on both sides of a front hub and have double disc brakes up front, some marzocchi forks had disc calliper tabs on both sides, right? :D

True!

You'd need new spokes and get the wheel rebuilt, so it hardly seems worth it!

why do it..... well why not.
its only the same as some like a bike with loads of gold or purple anodized bits..

it would be cool with a classic xtr hub or maybe on a classic chris king
personaly i just liked the idea of using it on an original XTR hub.
i had one built into a wheel on an xt hub i just thought it was cool.

Just love the fact it's been patented when somone else used to manufacture that specific item back in 1995 (AMP Research) it's not an original idea so how can you get a patent on it? :?
