    Spacer kit on Chris King hub

    Having an issue with a SS spacer kit on a King hub. I've been using this kit and a Niner 20t ring on a SRAM X9 hub for about 18 months. I'm trying to swap the kit/cog over to a King hub, but the King spacing seems to be different - with all the same spacers in the same places, when I tighten the lock ring down, the cog is loose. However, if I add another spacer, the threads on the lock ring don't meet the threaded part of the hub. Am I missing something? Do King hubs have a different freehub body spacing?

    Just add a thinner spacer, something like 1mm.

    If you're having trouble finding a thin enough cassette spacer, a BB spacer will work.

    Most hubs have slight variances. Go to your local shop and get a thin spacer for $1 or 2. Measure your chainline again, though.
