Chris King hubs are simply awesome: Top shelf quality, durability and price. It’s great to see a pair of hubs getting well used and standing up to the test of time.
These v-brake hubs were due for a rebuild and saving some weight was a great option so I rebuilt the hubs onto Stan’s ZTR 355 rims with a v-brake track.
Spokes at DT Swiss Revolution on the front and non-driveside rear. The driveside rear spokes are the stiffer, heavier Competition spokes. Aluminium nipples on the front wheel and brass on the rear save a few grams and helped these wheel come in at a very respectable 1440 grams.
