Not to take the wind out of your sails, but King BBs aren't that popular on the track. While it's likely that someone here may have done it, the SS/FG forum will probably get you an anwer a little quicker, so I would try your question there as well. They are great, beautifully made, and bombproof, but a little "overkill" for track use. Chris King's cartridge bearings and build quality/characteristics lend them more to "off piste" use. They are more popular on street fixies, along with Phil Wood BBs. Not saying you won't get your answer here, but you might be better off asking in the SS/FG forum. There is much more modular building (mix and match to make things work) in the SS/FG world, where people will take track specific equipment and put them on street fixies and conversions. Someone most likely has already done that over there.
