disc brakes

Hello,

I have a '15 CAADX rival. I am wanting to get a new wheelset. The wheelset I am looking at is centrelock disc and not 6 bolt. Besides the wheelset and getting centrelock disc rotors is there anything I would need to change on the bike?

Is your bike disc brake equipped already?

You can get an adapter to run 6-bolt on centerlock hubs, might save a few bucks depending on what you already have.

It is and has 6bolt. However, I am buying a new set so I can relegate the old wheelset to mainly road use. So, I would be buying new rotors anyway.

Cool, you shouldn't need anything for the bike.

I interchange two wheelsets, one with center-lock WI hubs, and the other with 6-bolt CK hubs. It isn't problematic. You may have to re-center the caliper when you change wheels, or shim one of the discs.
