    not that I know of (haven't done much research into hubs though) - I did find when researching for my new bike set up that usually 135mm disc hubs will work fine with 130mm drop outs.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Not a hubset but the Velomax (Easton) Sagitta wheelset is built for 130mm spacing.

    The Salsa Las Cruces is disc compatible and has a 135mm spaced rear end. It's nice and light also...

    I learned from another thread that Pantour makes the only 130mm disc hub other than the ones used in the Velomax Sagitta wheels. It's a little weird though -- the hub has a suspension built into it.

    Supposedly, Shimano will be producing such a hub soon, but I don't have any more info on this...

    Correction: Shimano isn't planning on making them. That was wrong... However, 130mm Shimano and Campy compatible hubs are available from Velocity USA. I just emailed them and they told me this:

    Yes, we do in fact have a 130mm disc hub, we already have them in stock.
    Presently, we are only producing these hubs in a 32 hole variety. Some
    specs include:

    4 sealed cartridge bearings
    Aluminum axle
    Aluminum end caps
    Polished black anodized hub shell with laser etched logo
    Available with Shimano and Campagnolo free hub bodies
