That’s Chris King Precision Components, and since 1976 they’ve made bicycle components people want to talk about. Over the years, we’ve heard many tales of how a headset went from bike frame to bike frame, or of a hubset surviving seemingly intolerable conditions. Some who have chosen Chris King components have stories to tell of Tour de France podiums, others of World Championships in the dirt, but most are the tales of daily rides and a passion for the bicycle. They are forever proud of the new bike build stories that begin with a Chris King headset as the lone, written-in-indelible-ink certainty. Each of these accounts reflects a reverence for their values, honored by every one.
This weeks wheel build of the week features another great pair of Boost MTB wheels built around the Whisky parts No 9 36W carbon rim. The Whisky rims are a modern carbon all-mountain / trail rim featuring a 30mm internal width designed to run tires in the 2.3 to 2.6 range. That makes these rims a great value for money alternative to other more expensive rims from IBIS, Santa Cruz or Zipp.
