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 week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.
Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
