Frequently Asked Questions on King Hubs

What's the hub service tool for? Do I need one?
Answer: The Hub Service Tool is only necessary for complete service of the hubs (removal and reinstallation of all press fit parts). This service should be done every 6 months to 1 year depending on riding conditions (more or less may be required depending on riding conditions). For more information on hub maintenance and service, check our hub technical information page or contact our technical services (800.523.6008, extension 231) to talk through it and/or arrange service.
My hub bearings are loose. What's going on?
Answer: They most likely just need adjustment. The only tools you need are two 5mm hex keys. The hub cone adjusting tool is not required but will make frequent adjustments (e.g., for shops) easier. The hub service tool is only required for complete hub service. For complete instructions see your owner's manual.
Are Chris King hubs Campagnolo 8, 9, or 10 speed compatible?
Answer: Our hubs are not Campagnolo compatible - they are designed with Shimano compatible driveshells. Though we don't endorse it, we've had good luck with the following:

For 8spd: Some companies make spacers that allow Shimano cogs to be used set to Campagnolo spacing. With this set up you should also use a Shimano chain.

For 9spd: Chris set his 9spd Campagnolo record bike up using 9spd Shimano Dura-Ace cogs and chain and it's been working flawlessly. There are also campy spaced spacers available to retrofit Shimano 9spd cogs.

For 10spd: Wheels manufacturing has released a campy compatible 10spd cogset made from a Shimano Ultegra 10spd stack. We are concerned that the cogs ride too close to the drive side spokes.

What is the hub warranty?
Answer: Our hub warranty is for 5 years. If you have a potential warranty issue, give our customer service folks a call and we'll arrange a return so we can evaluate it.
Does the hub warranty cover radial lacing?
Answer: Not anymore. Too much additional load is placed on the weakest part of the hub (the flanges) and little is gained by radial lacing. It is not stronger than a 2X pattern and hardly lighter. Why do it?
