Sure, in those pictures but I'VE never used CK before... For all K know there could be a 'classic disc'...
May I suggest you do at least a little research. The pics are directly off the CK web site and are on the pages you get when you click on "Hubs > Classic" and "Hubs > ISO".

The CK site is really tough to find, too: wwww.chrisking.com

I WAS THERE. Not all of us are 'wrenches' or should that be 'wenches'...

What about the hubs that had the disc adapter? I never really got what that was for.

nevermind - I guess they did that a while back when there were different standards. Do they make an adapter for the new Shimano rotors?

Those were the disc-o-tec hubs or something like that. Precisely for that. You could change them to any hole standard available back then. They haven't made that type of shell for several years now so no centerlock adapter. They only make the ISO shell for discs now.

That's what I was thinking of. I guess there are plenty of adapters to go either way now days anyhow.

I wish King would make a centerlock shell but given their way of doing things they'd take two years to design the shell. Another year to tool the shop for its manufacture. Two more years to test it to their satisfaction. About six months for them to be manufactured in sufficient quantities that you might actually get one after calling 15 different dealers. Oh and if shimano is charging a licensing fee for them forget it.

From your postings, you seemingly can't read. You went to the King site and couldn't figure out that an ISO and a Classic aren't the same thing? You might be an idiot ... Thanks for the laugh tard!

Hey good one...

Please show me where it definitely states that "classics" can NOT be used with discs... Once again, I've never used Kings hubs and am not ashamed to admit I'm new to MTB'ing. Where all were once...

ChrisInLeeds acts like a bonehead but you need to stop digging, too.

It is not the common practice for any company to tell you what will not work with a product. The descriptions tell you want they are, not what they are not.

Jwind, take a look at the red hubs in the above pictures. Do you see the "extra" aluminum where the 6 holes are? That is where the rotor is connected, the Classic doesn't have that piece machines into their hubs. That is the main difference. I'm sure there are other internal differences because of the added stress a disc brake setup puts onto a hub, but visually that is all you need to look at.

If you're asking for something more detailed and technical I'd think the best source would be either the CK site or calling their tech line and asking for specific information. The site provides all of the specs for the hubs, you can easily compare them.
