nope, you can use your old hub with a d'brake. Although not specified it works just as well with outboard brakes as inboard. All you need is a pair of spirit cranks, the disc calliper and some washers.

However be careful when choosing the calliper as most mechanical brakes are too wide and would hit the crank. There is a thread of what brakes people have used/are using.

Also do not be afraid to spend $10 on a brake line for a mechanical brake. Look at BMX brake lines rather than mountain bike ones.
