Centerlock, QR disc hubs for rim brake build?

I have some Velocity branded Centerlock disc hubs in QR 100f/135r configuration that fit nicely on my rim brake Trek MultiTrack that uses cantilever rims brake and QR 135 (mountain standard) hubs. Iím considering using these Taiwanese Velocity silver 24f/28r hubs in this rim brake wheel build.
I have not measured flange width but it appears as if they would build into perfectly strong wheels.
I was wondering if anyone knows if there are covers of any type to put over the Centerlock splines?

I did this on a rear wheel and it was not an issue. I beat the heck out of that wheel on a gravel bike. Perfectly fine.

Its rather difficult or expensive to find 135mm hubs of average or higher quality without disc brake compatibility.

Road hubs in 130 without disc are still available, likewise 100mm front.

As for a cover over the splines, I wouldnít bother. Maybe a black sharpie if itís a black hub.

my opinion is the centerlock design has much better transfer of force to the hub, resulting in reduced mechanical hysteresis

on the front especially

How is that going to affect a rim brake build?


For centerlock covers, put two turns of narrow electrical tape on the splines and use the lockring to hide the edge.

Thanks - any idea who has this part in stock?

yeah, I did not understand how it would impact a rim brake build either,

I may be using these hubs on a QR cyclocross disc frame natively after all. I found a really cool AD (Austro-Daimler) frameset that takes post mount disc brakes.
