everything above, plus since you have a fisher you need to get a disc brake kit, your dealer will have to order it for you. Many forum members have this wheelset and its served them well so you might want to look at it since you need new hubs.
These are 6 bolt hubs, which I think all brands use except for shimano, correct me if I'm wrong.
Shimano has a proprietary system to affix the discs to the hubs.
