    Chris King Disc go Tech hubs...experiences?

    Has anyone had any long term experience with Chris King Disc go Tech hubs? They are the type with the bolt on disc adaptor. Pre ISO. The bearings, freehub look identical to the ISO type.

    The shell is the only difference from a normal ISO hub. They are a tad heavier than ISOs and the appearance is a little clunky but functionally they are fine. I have about 7 years on a SS hub with the adapter set up and have never had a minute’s trouble with it.

    Wow that is durable!

    I bought them to put on my 5 Spot, then went for a 20mm through axle King front and a Hadley rear. I think I'll built them up with some tubeless 819s for the Flux project.

    I have some from circa 2002 also. Still in use, still perfect.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Kings suck.
    They hardly ever break, and they're too easy to service.
    HTF can I justify an "upgrade" with crap like that?

    Duuuuh they don't match my new bikes color so out they go!!!

    Friggin heirlooms is what they are.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    disco's are great. The machining is so well done that the the adapter runs perfectly straight from what I can tell. I've had a rear hub on a couple of diff bikes over the years and it's been great. It's on the single speed now that has v-brakes so I took the adapter off so that it would look nice and clean and shave a few grams off. sweet
