hubs

Are Chris King hubs Campagnolo 8, 9, or 10 speed compatible?

Our hubs are not Campagnolo compatible - they are designed with Shimano compatible driveshells. Though we don't endorse it, we've had good luck with the following:

For 8spd: Some companies make spacers that allow Shimano cogs to be used set to Campagnolo spacing. With this set up you should also use a Shimano chain.

For 9spd: Chris set his 9spd Campagnolo record bike up using 9spd Shimano Dura-Ace cogs and chain and it's been working flawlessly. There are also campy spaced spacers available to retrofit Shimano 9spd cogs.

My hub bearings are loose. What's going on?

They most likely just need adjustment. The only tools you need are two 5mm hex keys. The hub cone adjusting tool is not required but will make frequent adjustments (e.g., for shops) easier. The hub service tool is only required for complete hub service. For complete instructions see your owner's manual. If you do not have one, you can down load one from our PDF page or check out our hub technical information page.
