Something that has a Hub, Rotor, and the brakes and cables all in on package?

Also one quick question, when replacing the hub, dso you just remove the old one or do you need a whole new rim?
Have a talk with your lbs about a kit (I've never seen one that included the hubs) to fit your bicycle. They may even offer a brakes, cables, levers, wheelset deal.

Rim replacement depends on how trashed the old rim is. I'm 99% sure you'll have to replace the spokes and nipples when the new wheel is built.

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!
