The bike in the velospace pic doesn't have 700mm rims. You cannot do this with a badboy and 700mm rims. I have one, and the largest tyre I can use is a 32mm small block on the 700s. Recommended by Cannondale is only 28mm as you won't be able to fit the mudguards on with 32mm.
So I if you get the disc BadB with 700, you can also buy a set of 26" disc wheels to swap in the winter months, and swap the 700s back for the summer road cruising. This is why the Cannondale Badboy disc is a true hybrid. ie. you can change it easily from road to MTB.
If you choose the regular brakes, you can't swap.
