Disc hubs

On a bike with out disc breaks. So I just ordered a set of wheels with xt hubs. They stated that the wheels are good for either rim , or disc breaks. My mtb has rim breaks. I am asking since their is an extra side to the hub. So will this effect anything? Has anyone used hubs like this? Just wondering before I have them retensioned, and shod, whither I should replace or not.

You're overthinking it, they will work just fine. The disk mounts won't be in the way of anything.

The only thing it affects are your calculations when selecting spokes. Unlike a symmetrical front hub, you'll have some dishing to accomodate the disc mount. If you're building a wheelset, you'll need 4 different spoke lengths instead of 3.

I built my recent touring wheelset using XTR disc hubs and Velocity Synergy OC rims. Only needed two spoke lengths (294mm & 295mm) between the two wheels and I could probably have gotten away with using 294mm spokes for everything. A nice side benefit to the off-center drilling...

Thanks. They are actually already built, machined. Next step is to retension, which will happen in a few weeks.
Thanks for the replies.
