Strengths:    solid construction, high quality

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Just bought this tool and did a complete overhaul of my rear Chris King Hub, this tool was worth every penny, and the instruction booklet walks you through every step, very easy to do yourself...

I am glad I bought this tool now I can do all the maintenance work myself and not have to deal with any shops...if you want the job done right do it yourself!! Also order some Chris King ring drive lube...I called every shop in the area nobody carries the stuff

Service your hubs once a year and the tool will pay for itself

Date Reviewed: September 29, 2005

Strengths:    Beautifully made (as with every chris king product), comes with a decent manual that has lots of helpful pictures, does exactly what it says on the tin

Weaknesses:    Price, this beast is damn expensive

Bottom Line:   
It may be expensive, but at about £40 for an annual service of a rear hub and £15 for a front, £140 for a tool to service them yourself seems to make sense when the hubs are guaranteed for five years. If you've already got chris king hubs (which you probably have if youre reading this) then i guess you won't be averse to splashing out on quality gear. I'd recommend it to anyone who's serious about maintaining their bike, even if you arn't an experienced machanic, the manual is easy to follow and explains exactly what you need to do step by step. 5 chillis overall, but only 4 for value because it doesnt come cheap.

Strengths:    
Design,documentation in enclosed manual, part labeling on tool and beautiful workmanship of tool itself.


Weaknesses:    
Could have been designed to double as headset tool


Bottom Line:   
Works as expected and hoped. The manual is written in easy speak and the tool is very beautiful. Everything about King comoponents seems to be better than expected. This tool is worth having even if you never take the hubs apart.

Stan's Hub plug conversion from qr to 15 mm, do I need a tool for this?

Picked up a set of Stan's Arch's. They came set up for QR and came with the plugs to convert to 15 mm. Holy cow these plugs are in there. They're pretty much impossible to get out. Any suggestions?Read More »

Pugsley wheelbuilding tool and 10mm thru axle hub

The Shimano Zee hub I'd like to use in the rear wheel of my Pugsley build has a 10mm x 135mm thru axle. The Pugsley 35mm wheelbuilding tool is designed to be used with a standard QR axle and therefore can't be clamped to my Zee hub. Surely I'm not the first one that has built an offset Pugsley wheel ... Read More »

Tallboy "Front Hub Tool"? / lbs issues

So last weekend one of the nicer lbs was getting rid of their rental fleet, and I showed up to buy one of their Tallboys. I believe it's a 2012, Al, RXC build which looks stock. It's been ridden quite a bit; the coating on the crank is coming off where shoes have worn into it and it was dirty from ... Read More »
