Really nice made

For all who like americancraftsmanship this is a perfect buy. This hub works brilliant. Whenever possible I prefer buying american or european products. I will not complain about all the companies around break down while I am buying cheaper products from china.

Pros: One for a lifetime

Cons: Nothing

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes

Chris King R45 Rear

Now for roadies, the R45 may be what you're looking for. I ordered mine in the 32 hole, RED color for a titanium bike build project. Can be built up strong and lightweight. It looks great with my HED C2 rims. Yes, there is still the angry bee sound, it didn't go away away... but it is muted some from the classic hub. Personally I kinda like it!

Pros: Lots of color choices
Lots of hole options
Chris King strength


Cons: Expensive
Buzz sound (if you value stealth)

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes

Another bombproof hub from CK. Smooth rolling and nice buzz when you're freewheelin. Great color selection.

Pros: Typical Chris King quality product. Great warranty.

Great hubs, nice quiet but active freewheel sound. Build up strong and true and easily adjust the bearing preload.

This hub is alot quieter than my Mavic hub. I haven't put alot of miles on this hub yet. But the bearings run super smooth. Im a little concerned about the aluminum driveshell grooving, but I dont think it will be that big of a problem with a higher end cassette such as a SRAM Red or Dura Ace.

Pros: Quieter than most hubs I've used. Five year warranty, durability and looks, very well made and very easy to adjust.

Cons: Aluminum driveshell, no option for Campy users.

Butter smooth just like the ISO MTB hubs. The actual weight of my rear hub was 219 grams.

Pros: Super smooth and great warranty

Cons: Expensive however a one and done item

Beautiful hub, actual weight 213g. I did have to regrease the ring drive when I started to experience engagement issues after a couple of very wet rides, but no problems since. Also had to adjust the preload after the first couple of rides.

Pros: Light weight, CK quality, quieter than CK Classic hubs.

Cons: Aluminum drive shell splines will be notched by individual cassette cogs.
