    New question here. Help: Fitting Chris King ISO 135 Fun Bolts to KM Ops

    I've been running my KM as SS for a while, but decided it might be fun to throw some gears on it. I picked up a Chris King wheelset (ISO 135mm + Fun Bolts), but I can't figure out how to fit it to my KM now.

    I blindly thought 135mm SS to 135mm 10-speed would just work, but it doesn't appear I have the right MDS bits (I have figures 1, 2, 4 and 5).

    My derailleur is a SRAM XX 10-speed (not direct mount). I attempted to setup my wheel with the figure 4 bits, but that appears to take the frame spacing to 142mm (and requires a direct mount derailleur).

    Do the figure 3 bits require a 142mm hub? If so, could I simply use the figure 5 bits instead of the CK Fun Bolts?

    tl;dr: How do I fit a Chris King 135 x Fun Bolt 10-speed hub to a Surly Karate Monkey Ops?

    I just 10 minutes ago fitted a 11 speed Shimano XT M8000 cassette to a King 135 hub for my Yo Eddy, fit fine. I'm not very knowledgeable on single speed rigs though but 135 is 135.

    It's a Chris King axle type where two 12mm bolts thread into each side of the hub.

    This is pretty different from what I'm trying to do since my hub isn't QR and my frame has Surly's modular dropout system.

    You should use #1, just thread the bolts in most of the way before inserting into the dropout. The funbolt uses a 12mm thread, but it's necked down to 10mm at the head to fit in a standard dropout.

    Hope has a very similar setup with their SS hubs and this is what I did. Just thread them in part way than slide in to the drop out. Or slight the wheel in than do one side at a time.
    Mr. Krabs: Is it true, Squidward? Is it hilarious?
