Chris King are renowned for making the best bearings in the bicycle business. As with all high performance products they require routine maintenance to keep them running flawlessly.
We specialise in complete overhauls on all brands of hubs but Chris King are the most technical and require specialist tools to complete the job properly. Chris King suggest that you should service your hubs regularly, every 6-12 months in normal/dry conditions and every 3-6 months in wet conditions. We’ve found this to be pretty accurate. This type of preventative maintenance helps to keep your hubs, BB’s & headset’s working perfectly and reduces the risk of a breakdown, which can be costly to repair.
In our overhaul services the Chris King bearings are removed from the hubs and stripped down fully before being cleaned in our ultrasonic cleaning bath. The same goes for the axles, drive rings and drive shell. Then the parts are rinsed in clean water before being blown dry using our air line. Parts are then re-assembled with the appropriate lubricants/greases recommended by Chris King.
