Chris King hubs are crazy noisy. Make sure that's what you want. My main road wheels these days use White Industries T11 hubs, and I'm very happy with them FWIW. They are reasonably quiet if I skirt the rules and lube the pawls with Phil Tenacious oil.

Realistically, I'm pretty set for custom Dream Bikes after getting a metallic purple Mercian Audax, for general road riding. That is however unlikely to stop possible n+1 action in the future.
thanks that is info that is good for me........ and yes I still have Kandy Apple Kolor tastes
Life is too short not to ride the best bike you have, as much as you can
