Chris King hub conversion

Postby pedalbasher » Sat Oct 12, 2019 13:57 pm

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
