Center locking hub or 6 Bolt-forgive the dumb question

Just want to make sure I am looking at this correctly. Is this a center lock hub or 6 bolt?

I am asking because I may be upgrading the brakes and want to put on Ice Tech rotors. So if it's center lock I order Center lock configuration correct?

Sorry new to this modification thing on this bike.

Thanks!

What's wrong with the rotor, it looks unused.

Here's a bit of info about different Shimano rotors.

Nothing wrong with them, you want to buy them?

I am looking to see if I can put some Ice-Techs on this bike with my current calipers which are Shimano Deore m447 I believe. I am guessing I can't because mine are wide and the RT99s appear to be narrow.

Of course you can use Ice-Techs, the rotors are interchangeable, as long as you get centerlocks.

Not sure I can according to that compatibility chart. If I want to get the Ice techs they appear to be all in a narrow configuration, and the m447s are wide which means I need a new caliper. I want to swap the entire system for Deore XT with the RT99s to start out. But now I may have to do it all at one time if this is the case.

That.

RT-99 probably IRL won't stop you much better than RT-81 or RT-86 or RT900 or the RT-54s he has now. Only question is how much money you want to burn on consumables.

Yep I get it..but this is an upgrade to the bike I want to make. So back to topic...Will my current calipers work with those rotors? Looks like it won't from what i can see. So may upgrade the entire brake system with pre bled M8000.
