My SJ is the '03 model (Shoulda waited for the new '04 frame -- Shoulda! Shoulda! Shoulda!) and it has Mavic X221's, and the LBS guy told me they are "disk ready" as is.

You can also note that the Stumpjumpers Expert Disk which already come with Shimano hydraulics use the same Mavic wheels.

Honestly, I'm not knowledgeable enough to say whether your own weight, size, and riding style (if aggressive) would stress the Mavic twenty-two hundred series rims and spokes.

CORRECTION: I said the Specialized mounts were ready for Hayes hyros, but upon review it seems that Specialized uses Shimanos on their stock setup. Best to check with the LBS to make sure the mounts take Hayes without an adapter.
