    How to Tell Difference Between Chris King Front Hubs

    I am wanting to change my Chris King front hub from a 15mm thru axle to a 20mm thru axle, but how can I tell if I have the SD or LD ISO 15mm front hub? I went to Chris King's website, and the pics between the two don't make it obvious to me. Is there something I could measure or does anything stamped on the hub indicate which version it is. According to CK's specs, the only difference is weight, and 1mm longer Center to Flange non-Drive side.

    Thanks - BS

    So if your hub is orange its an SD and if it's blue it's an LD.

    Try looking at the rotor side of each shell.

    And you're never allowed to play Photohunt at the bar with me.

    Did you end up determining your front hub size? Sent a related PM to the OP.
    Civilization ends at the waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.
