|Will a disc hub fit properly in a road/cross fork?|

|MTB and road hubs are both 100mm face to face, so they will fit in the fork.
The spoke flanges on a disk wheel are not evenly spaced since the one on the left has to be moved in to make room for the rotor. The result is a wheel that has to be dished like a rear wheel. Slightly weaker but probably of no consequense.
Whether rim brakes will fit depends on the rim and fork.

|thanks. I'll be using Mavic MA3 rims which are pretty much standard rims. As for the brakes, Dia COmp cantilevers or XTR V brakes. not sure yet.
Thanks again! Will be buying a White Industries Front hub!
