ringle! gotta luv the klik klik klik........... ;D
mine drives freeman & mountG crazy.... ;D
Hahaha ... so do my Ringles ...
When you have one, no need for those bike bells, just stop pedalling and people turn their heads automatically when they hear the crisp n beautiful sounding (or annoying to other folks) TIK TIK TIK TIK. Otoh ... makes it a lot harder to sneak the bike out of the house ...
Chris King hubs also have a distinctively loud buzzing sound too - do all high performance hubs with lots of pawls make lotsa noise?
indeed,if money is not an issue.go for the big ones, Hope,CK's, Ringle
so far i've used only 2 types. and i can say Shimano owns it. i've used a pair of m475's (Malaysia) for like 3++ years w/out any maintenance whatsoever and it never complained.it just kept on spinning and i kept on pedalling. and i've logged some century rides with that and tons of river crossings,muddy rides.everything one can encounter in mtbiking. what more for the higher end models w/c i have yet to try.
you gotta hear those Hopes. if you think CK's are noisy, Hopes are like screamin "hey my hubs are expensive!". i dont know why they have to be very noisy. if i have lotsa money i'll go for those quiet ones like DTswiss and I9's. i bought CK's for the sake of having one. there's really nothing so special about it. it's expensive bcos of its name or maybe bcos it's US made. i dont feel any difference between it and a paralux. this time i bought Hope bcos its cheap and light. made in UK is an extra bonus
Chris King is the Best because it's a Chris King Jewelry that Mr. RC fried our mind , but same function as the other Hubs, Innovation fad.
Well, that's the difference between a silver and a gold.
Mr. RC of MBAction will not review anything w/o a big return, its a biz!!!!
In fairness to Chris KIng, it's worth to buy his product because it performs well aside for being a piece of Jewelry.
Chris King period ... worth every penny. 72 engagement points engaging at the same time all the time.
Everything is relative, if you haven't broken your hub in all places, then maybe what your using is the best. Relative including pricing...its US made so it would definitely be more expensive. A better brake than magura HS33 is made in China but costs twice...THAT is not fair hehe
For me nothing feels as solid as a King. Everything else on my bike is c rap except for the hub ;D IE an accera crank drives my king hub hehe
The best is when you can order a spring for your hub way after your warranty expires. Every single part is replaceable and available direct from CK.
Can't do that with an XTR.
mythbuster (reply to an old post hehe) you have to ride one, once you tried it you will know its not the same as other hubs.
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka
Aug 13, 2019 7:39:14 GMT 8
oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.
Aug 15, 2019 23:44:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
