Rather than bombard the front page with standalone posts from press releases, we've decided to compile the news in a weekly post. Product releases, race results, events, and whatever else comes across the radar.

This week's Industry News comes from Chris King, E*Thirteen, Spank Industries, and Sombrio.

The problem with uniquely coloured hubs is they may not match future builds… but then if you're buying Chris King you kinda want something flashy. The other concern is compatibility. Fortunately the front hubs are convertible from 15-20 with an axle (not cheap but possible) and the rears can go 135-142.

I can confirm this. Had a black frame and wheels with purple hubs, cracked it, got a red and polish frame under warranty… Didn't look so awesome.
