Yes, the wheels are not disc compatible. However, disc type wheels (preferrably 36 spoke) could be part of the "upgrade" when adding the disc brake parts..... The frame, and fork, are already set up to recieve them. This could even be done over stages - do both wheels, then do the brakes separately, do one wheel complete, or even just do one wheel at a time, and one brake at a time, until you are done.
If you have to replace any wheels - this should be taken into consideration - it's easy to get wheels that are both disc and pad compatible.
