Looking for the right hubs? DT Swiss have always been the hubs of choice, reliable and I have the tools, but I wanted to spoil myself and the white 240S hubs just seem to be on backorder for life……so thinking along the lines of keeping those big wheels turning these could bolster the speed, and give that lovely King wirh!
Chris King® rear hubs are the only hubs that use their patented RingDrive™ engagement mechanism. The Chris King® RingDrive™ engagement mechanism uses 72 teeth on each drive ring, making it engage over 3 times faster than a typical 24 tooth pawl-type freehub. The unique RingDrive™ engagement mechanism provides you with instant, positive forward movement that no other hub can match. When you start out or go for a surprise attack, you won’t waste any of your precious power moving forward. This hub is super strong too! King has found that it has a handling torque load of over 800ft/lbs (1085 Newton meters). That’s over three times more than most other high end hubs that Chris King® has tested.
So good for high grunt singlespeed and fixed dutys too. And as I’ve never owned any its about time then.So time for the wheel build.
