    Strengths:    Longevity

    Weaknesses:    I don't think so.

    Bottom Line:   
    Have had first set for 13 years (bought a 2nd pair for my cruiser 10 yrs ago) and still not a single problem. How many hubs have you bought in that time? Still think they are over priced?

    Strengths:    chris king is top of the line & well known so no need to state the obvious. some love the 'killer bees' sound the rear hub makes while freewheeling.

    Weaknesses:    some don't like the same sound which divides them from the rest of the cassette hub bunch. wouldn't consider it a weakness, merely weak point. i wear ear plugs & enjoy the noise

    Bottom Line:   
    chris king has really done the hub right. it's easy for self service & most likely won't need any major services unless general maintenance isn't adhered too. best money can buy & should last a cyclist lifetime when properly taken care of
    wish i had a set on all my bikes

    Strengths:    Everything

    Weaknesses:    Can't use them with pegs

    Bottom Line:   
    AMAZING hubs and anyone who has written a bad word about these hubs should be shot!!! Unbelievable performance from a 100% green environmentally sound company. The engineering quality is increadible, the pick up of the cassette is like no other. They are very light and ride well in all conditions. They are a race hub and are not designed for street and park use but I've been shredding mine for time now and they haven't missed a beat. Phenominal hubs that deserve a place in history.

    Strengths:    72pt

    Weaknesses:    Price
    If you tell something they'd like not to hear, chris king won't give you warranty
    Customer service
    5-year kid level drilling job
    bearing
    rolling resistance



    Bottom Line:   
    The one I purchased today was the worst hub.
    (king SS rear hub)

    Spoke hole drilling was worse than chinese hub.

    I mailed king and they rejected my mail address.

    I've paid $400 and got the botch.

    I complaint Ms Adrian Knapp about bearing price before and sounds like she put my address to black list.

    You can try my e-mail address vengo_subito@hotmail.com and
    chris king rejected and other fake email passed.

    Strengths:    Lightweight,bulletproof, more engagement increments, flat out amazing

    Weaknesses:    Price is still higher than most will see as worthy

    Bottom Line:   
    THE BEST - hands down nothing to even compare to , Profiles very good for the money , also have some of them , but the Kings are the "KINGS". Chris King products are like 3M products if they make it, you can bet they are without peer and buying otherwise is just settling for less.
