You see-the whole point of CF wheels is that they are super-light. Adding the extra poundage of a dics brake system (not to mention the needed beefing-up of the stays and fork) would make this setup pointless. CF wheels are for:
1) Racers, willing to accept the shortcomings of the material in order to save some weight
2) Guys that just have to get the lightest components, no matter the cost, and
3) Poseurs that just want the look, even though it makes absolutely no sense whatever.
Putting CF racing wheels on a hybrid makes absolutely no sense at all.
