no a flipflop hub has nothing to do with a disc brake.

get a mtb hub, prob best gettn a hope xc imo. you will be able to put the rotor onto the hub then, and you need to choose a frame with a disc mount on the rear triangle for the caliper to attatch.

if you already have a frame without a disc mount, you can buy a torsion bar that clamps to the dropout up to the brake boss and will allow you to run a disc on the frame.

You can buy disc brakes kits that thread onto the other side of your flip-flop.

you can't.

find me proof and i believe you.

a disc has a standard 6 bolt attatchment to screw onto a disc specific hub, or it can have the kind of attachment that hayes use, which require a converting bracket usually, to allow compatability with hubs.

you do not screw a rotor onto a flip flop hub.
