Bontrager making hubs...that's funny.
do they not make hubs? i've seen bontrager branded hubs all over the place. i suppose they could be rebranded, but my knowledge of this area is quite limited.

so assuming i wanted to maintain a shimano center lock system, my choices are the three brands listed initially and that's it? how would a ck adapter work?

There are centerlock to 6-bold adaptors, are there ones that go the other way?

It would be difficult to create one.

The 6 bolt standard is larger than the centerloc standard. To make a IS to Centerloc would mean stepping down the size, and I think it would require pushing over the hub to make room for the Centerloc mounting and rotor.

And if it was created, then we have to ask why? A 6 bolt hub with the proper disc will work with LX/XT/XTR disc brake system.
