    Strength:

    Longevity

    Weakness:

    I don't think so.

    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?

    Strength:

    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.

    Weakness:

    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

    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

    Strength:

    Everything

    Weakness:

    Can't use them with pegs

    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.

    Strength:

    it is strong and is the perfect hub for bmx

    Weakness:

    the only problem is that it takes a while to wear in the back one and the front one takes about twice as long as the front one

    King Hubs are the best ever made except for the dragg int the back and especially the front (This hub set is only for the dedicated rider who's got a lot of money)

    Strength:

    72pt

    Weakness:

    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

    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.

    Strength:

    direct drive system, strong, mad noise, i only just had to touch them about 1 month ago

    Weakness:

    spline strips

    the bottom line is that Chris King hubs are the bomb and would recomend them to anyone that had the money to buy them

    Strength:

    Lightweight,bulletproof, more engagement increments, flat out amazing

    Weakness:

    Price is still higher than most will see as worthy

    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.
