    King Hubs are pretty loud, especially with light oil. On a track if you come up behind someone in a turn that 'ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" freaks them out. Too much drag though for anything other than trials.

    My Halos were no louder than an older XT. My Ringles are a bit quieter than my Hadleys. The King wasn't really loud... but more of a annoying buzz. The new XT has a pleasant ratchet.

    Eastern, I9, Profiles, and Atomlab Aircorp hubs are all pretty loud.
    Live for the moment and persist to exist.

    haha... oh man. "killer bees" my azz.
    no offense to any who run the products (I've still got an old 1" grip nut king headset that's going strong), but I kind of see it more like the whine of a pathetic yuppie mating call who apparantly thought the "CK" stood for calvin klein products, therefore dropped the coin. Company has outstanding business practices, but some of the fanboys just kill it for me.




    Pro II's are great hubs for a decent price, why are you looking for an alternative? I've been diggin' mine, as well as the profiles.

    Each to their own i suppose. I've had nothing but great service and life span from my King stuff- so that's why i buy it. As long as it works and I can trust it when i ride that's all i care for.

    Chill a little bro

    There are King fanboys but the pair of King hubs I owned never had problems. That was back when I rode XC and the front one had literally tens of thousands of miles on it over the years and I never took it apart once. I still have it and it turns smooth as any hub I've ever felt.

    My rear went from high mileage XC to being built up around an DX 32 rim for trials use. Took about two years of trials abuse on top of the XC mileage and once again, never took it apart. I finally sold it and got almost exactly what I paid for it. Before I sold it I sent it in to King for service and for $25 they upgraded some of the parts and refurbished it.

    I'm no King fanboy but I doubt I will ever own a pair of hubs like that again.

    Sorry, a bit off topic.

    but they're nowhere near a Pro II; I have the Hope and it's way louder than my mates Mini.
