Strengths:    Very solid, nice finish, great adjustment settings, beautiful color options. In one word, FANCY

Weaknesses:    A bit expensive from my pov AND could be a bit to people used to free-maintenance hubs

Bottom Line:   
From the very start, we -mechanic, me- noticed this hub had a little play, even if I was locking the t/a at full torque. Then I did some research and it turned to be pilot error. I was not aware that the hub came in that way on purpose, until I read the maintenance pdf. I guess many people reading this has a King hub with this "problem", so I can tell you, read the manual and follow the instructions step by step, you'll never have a problem and you only need forrest gump ic to understand, just read it. I swear you don't need to be any close to a mechanic to make it happen.

Once you dial this adjustment they roll great, don't have any play, and you ride confidently over a stable platform as it is supposed to be. If not, why bothering in buying a 20mm t/a?

Strengths:    Massive, well sealed, adjustable on the fly, stainless steel (I believe), angular contact bearings. Absolutely beautiful, cosmetic, appearance. Warranty. Spoke holes are just big enough for 13 gauge spoke elbows to snap in tightly, great for DT Alpine III spokes.

Weaknesses:    This is one bike part that I honestly can not think of a way to improve upon.

Bottom Line:   
Buy one.

Chris king iso 20mm-qr?

Hi. I'm pretty sure the answer is no, because King 20mm hubs were very specifically designed for 20mm, but is it possible to convert the hub to qr like Hope etc hubs do? The reason is I just picked up a pair of iso hubs, but they are laced to DH rims and I am an Xc dude w/ only qr forks. Has any ... Read More »

For those with 20mm King ISO disc hubs...

I had an interesting conversation with a customer service rep at King Cycle Group the other day when I was ordering some parts. I had asked a couple of times since I bought the hub for the expander ring for their hub tool to pull the bearings out for a full service, each time I was told they didn't ... Read More »
