You can convert the 20 to a 24, but not the classic to a 20...
I guess I was thinking of my own setup, thanks for the clarification.MK_ said:classic implies non-disc, so just to reiterate your point, QR cannot be converted to a 20mm, different axle gap in the shell. QR ISO shares the axle with the classic hub. And yes, 20mm can use the 24mm axle.
You couldn't do it even with a new hubshell. The 20mm hub bearings are much bigger than on the ISO/Classic. You're looking at a new hub to go to 20mm.jrm said:without doing anything to the hub shell?
You can by swapping the classic shell to a ISO shell. Cost is something in the neighborhood of $60 or $80. Contact King, they'll gladly let you know. You can make a salt shaker out of the old shell, King might sell you the plugs as well(Tom) said:This might be a dumb question (but one I've been meaning to ask) but can you convert a king "classic" front to a disc hub ? If so does anyone know how much the conversion costs ?
It's closer to ninety something for the hubshell alone plus labor to replace. The rear you just need to change the hubshell but the front needs a new axel and axel caps which adds quite a bit to the deal. Go see you favorite King dealer for details. You'll have to go through them anyway since King quit dealing direct.(Tom) said:This might be a dumb question (but one I've been meaning to ask) but can you convert a king "classic" front to a disc hub ?

I know they have a fun-bolts option for the rear, but is there anything for the front?
nup. though you could use a steel non-QR allen bolt skewer to stiffen things up a bit. i've done that in tha past. seemed to make a difference, or maybe it's just in my head. not 20mm stiff, but moreso than a standard QR.dulyebr said:I've read about some people using BMX bolt axles instead of skewers on Shimano Deore hubs. Is this possible with Chris King ISO's?
