Why We Like The Centerlock to 6-Bolt Rotor Adapter
Shimano's Centerlock to 6-Bolt Disc Rotor Adapter is a pretty straightforward article. It slides onto the centerlock mount on your hubs, leaving an interface to mount a six-bolt rotor. It includes a six-bolt washer, a lockring, and a circle clip to secure the conversion, and a standard Shimano lockring tool is all you need to install it. It's a home mechanic's job, but note that each kit only adapts one centerlock hub, so you'll need two for an entire bike.
Please note that this kit is not compatible with most 2-piece rotor designs. These rotors typically feature an anodized black center carrier that is bolted to the steel outer rotor, and they can create clearance issues when used with this kit. Stick to one-piece rotors for optimal compatibility.

An elegant solution for one-piece rotors
I bought this to convert my Shimano XT centerlock hubs and make them 6-bolt compatible since I already had 6-bolt rotors. This product is extremely easy to install, and they stay secure. It doesn't seem to significantly affect rotor location as I didn't have to adjust my caliper very much after installation. I used with standard, one-piece rotors without issue. As mentioned below, this will not likely work with two-piece rotors. The price is hard to beat, and shipping was quick. Thanks Backcountry!
