So I know (at least in the past, I assume still), it was easy and possible to convert a chris king classic rear hub from Mountain to Road (and vice versa)

It was as easy as swapping out the 135mm axle for a 130mm axle

now here is the question I have.
I have a GREAT chance to get some CHEAP Chris King Hubs off a friend. They are from the original Bontrager Race lite wheels back in 2000. They were Chris King 'for Bontrager' branded.

I had a set back then. and they seemed to be normal Chris King hubs, with no difference.

Is anyone familiar?
Is it worth getting them to be able to convert them to road standard?


Thanks!
Barry

I did email King... just have not heard back yeat

and 24 front? I was thinking they were 28 front and 28 rear... which would have been fine

even then, for the price, for the rear alone might be worth it

thanks!
