I am new to the sport so please pardon my ignorance,

I have a 03 Dakar on which I would like to put some Avid discs on. Does the basic formula hub that comes with the 03 dakar accept the disc brakes or am I going to need to get a new hub/wheelset?

Don't know, but the way to check is...
Look on the on the hub. On one side of the hub there should be 6 holes facing outwards with threads in them. If there is not, then no, your hub is not disk compatabile.
Heres a pic of a disk hub.

Hey, Thanks a ton. I thought it was going to be much harder than that!
