When Chris King decided to design a thru-axle front hub, they had a simple goal -- make the best hub money can buy. With the Chris King ISO Disc 20mm Thru-Axle Front Hub, they just might have done it. The 20mm Thru-Axle Hub utilizes a special bearing, almost the size of a headset bearing that King designed for this very purpose. The custom bearing was needed because King designed this hub to have an axle, supported by the bearings, that a 20mm thru-axle slides through. The reason is toughness. A great side effect is that you'll never, ever, ever lose an end cap when you transport your wheel off the bike. The lightweight aluminum axle is protected by stainless steel endcaps to offer durability that will last until the world ends. And if you can see past it's toughness, this hub is as beautiful as the rest of King's parts. The Chris King ISO Disc 20mm Thru-Axle Front Hub is configured for 20mm x 110mm thru-axles. It has 6-bolt ISO brake rotor mounts. For those of you building your own wheels, the flange diameter is 57. 6mm, and the center to flange distance is 31. 2mm on the right and 23. 1mm on the left. And, for those who want to go bigger and use this hub with a Maverick Fork, King's 24mm front axle can be swapped into place when needed. Or you can go smaller. Since this is technically a Chris King LD (large diameter) hubshell, you can use a Chris King 15mm Conversion Kit for LD Hubshell to convert it to use a 15mm thru-axle.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
