    Question about new hubs

    If I were to replace my existing hubs with something better, for example, Chris King hubs, how would it affect my bicycles performance? Thanks-

    I switched from Deore Hubs to Xt hubs, and i cant tell the difference at all, but that being said, Chris King hubs are in a league of their own. I think the only think i MIGHT notice would be the rear hub, as i think they might have more "engagement" points.

    I was only using Chris King hubs as an example, any upgrade is what I'm thinking about. However, it seems liek quicker engagement seems to be the only difference. thanks guys-

    No problem , I wasn't sure what you were asking . Unless your hubs are thrashed , you wouldn't notice much/any difference . King hubs are very smooth , and will stay like that for a long, long time. I'm using a 14 year old Chris King headset now, and it's as smooth as the day I bought it .
