Labels Out Or In?
PrettyPinkStinner-11

Yesterday people got in a little debate about hub label orientation on Chris King hubs. So which way is it?

A few years ago, I asked Chris King and Jay Sycip which “way” the hub label should be facing on a King front hub. I had always heard the rider should be able to read the label and while most manufacturers agree, Chris King wanted the viewer of the bike to see his name.

One way to tell it was intentional: the cone adjustment is on the same side as the rear hub when you place the name facing out. So, technically, yes the hub is in the wrong orientation with the Stinner. Does it matter? No. Especially since the traditional way is facing in.

Think I’ll pack it in and buy a pick-up. Take it down to LA Find a place to call my own and try to fix up. Start a brand new day.

Guys, gals. I’m beginning to make the move to Los Angeles. Today I left Austin at 4am and began to drive out West, planning to arrive in LA Friday night. Next week brings about a MTB jaunt, a few awesome galleries and Interbike coverage, as well as some Austin-ender photosets.

Thanks for coming here, commenting and sharing the stoke. I can’t wait to land in Los Angeles and share with you some more rad atavism.

Making the Rounds

Artistic cycling is like figure skating. You either love it or hate it, but Nicole Frybortova’s routine at the recent EMS Cup is beyond impressive.

This has nothing to do with cycling, unless you chose to ride in White Oak by Cone Denim. 110 year of making the fabric for some of the best jeans in the world. If you ever get the chance to buy a pair of White Oak denim, you won’t regret it.
