    King ss disc hub question

    Anyone know why king uses the universal disc mount for the ss hub instead of the iso? Do many ssers ride with different rotors?

    It was cheap for them to do and they had a bunch of left over Uni-disc adaptors they had to get rid of.

    They gave us some sort of BS reply about SSs not having a "standard" disc setup that required different types of mounts and spacing.

    So are there discs that you cannot run on the King hubs?

    shimano centerlock. But they were not even out when the SS Disc hub was released.

    And 3-bolt. Different bolt circle diameters, too.
