Should I buy a Hub with 4 bolt hole mounts or six?

The brands that use 4 bolts are limited and not standard anymore. Coda and Rockshox were the main ones to use the 4 bolt setups. Go with 6 bolt so you can get replacement parts without a headache. That is unless the Shimano Centerlock self-fastening rotors turn you on. The center locks are a simpler setup, but as of yet all but restricted to shimano. If you are a shimano type, then that's fine.
