Is it possible to change out the hubs on these wheels? I'm considering a frame with disc brakes, is it doable to just swap out the hub to disc brake hubs? Or are the dimensions incorrect (width, bearings)? 202 tubulars are perfect, and seemingly can rebuilt to "something else".

There aren't enough holes in the rims. The rear may do OK but 18 spokes are not enough for a disc build. Disc brakes greatly increase the load on the spokes.
Maybe consider 303 Disc Tubular?

Damn guess that settles it. Would think that disc brakes would be natural pair for climbing wheels, since you're going to have to come down anyways. Hopefully the 202s get updated in the future. I did consider the 303s but climbing in the 202s is just too much fun to give up for something even only 200g heavier.

Instead, consider not having disc brakes! If you're concerned about 200g and all...
