    Chris king 135mm to 142mm conversion

    Hi folks, I have done some internet searching for a while but still no luck finding the answer. I have just bought the Chris King 142mm axle that comes with a washer thingy. I just wonder where I should put that washer. Thanks

    Actual process for converting the King hubs?

    Is it really as simple as just buying a new axle, or is there more that is required? I had called Universal Cycles about this a while ago and I got the feeling that there was more to it than just the axle.

    It depends on the hub! If it post April 2007, then all you need is the axle. If it's pre April 2007 you will need the axle and the locking collar. The Stainless Steel end cap snaps on after the axle and locking collar are installed.

    Here are some links:

    According to Chris King support, the proper p/n for the 142x12 Turner DW-link rear is PHB569, along with your existing adjusting clamp.

    Perfect - thanks. I'm pretty sure these are pre-2007, so it is very helpful that you pointed this out. Much appreciated!

    Put it on the only side it will fit on, the non-drive side.
