Hi everyone

I am close to buying a set of Enve 3.4 disc wheels on Chris King R45D hubs set up as 12mm thru axle.

My frame is QR rear (not thru axle) so I would need to convert the rear hub to QR.

Can anyone kindly post a link to the right product, or give me a part no.? I am struggling in the minefield of CK spare parts and not sure I'm looking at the right thing.

Thanks very much.

    I think you may be looking for Part No PHB705 as I haven't located any other rear axle QR converters

    but they appear to be unavailable on the Chris King website. Have found them listed on a UK site called Bromley Bike

    https://www.bromleybike.co.uk/shop/comp ... 18907.html

    and also on a South Korean site

    https://www.bicyclehero.com/gb/chris-ki ... rs-x2.html

    Not sure on the veracity of either supplier but at least you could call the UK source to check that you are buying the correct converter
  • Thanks, appreciate that. Not sure whether i will actually need a full replacement axle like this

  • Turns out I will need the following two parts:

    PHB646 - Rear axle 135mm
    PHB768 - Rear QR axle end

    If anyone has any info on where I might be able to get them, that would be really helpful. I'm struggling to find anywhere apart from Chris King direct, from the US, with crazy shipping charges.

    Thanks v much

    Can a UK Chris King stockist not order them for you? Saddleback are the importer, many, many UK shops have accounts with Saddleback, possibly one of them could help you.
