There are a slew of reasons why cyclists gravitate toward Chris King components, many of which revolve around the fact that everything is still manufactured in the USA, using only the best parts available. When you combine that with the notorious reliability and serviceability that comes with all of King's products, you've got a recipe that's pretty tough to beat. Such is the case with King's new R45 Disc Road Front Hubs, which were built to handle the rigors of road and cyclocross racing, where durability and smooth-rolling reliability is always a must. The R45 Disc Road Front Hubs spawned from the original, tried-and-proven R45s, with the addition of machined 6-bolt disc mount and taller flanges. Similar to the R45s, the new disc version of the hub relies on the renowned internals that have made the originals so popular among both recreational and competitive cyclists the world over. King manufactures all of its stainless steel bearings in-house, with each hand-checked for precision and built with a resilient sealing system. These silky bearings run smooth from the get-go, and the overall hub design lends itself to easy service when the time comes. King's strong, constant diameter axles run through the bearings to the frame and fork dropouts, which promotes consistent handling and stiffness under load. The Chris King R45 Disc Road Front Hubs are available in either 28 or 32 hole options, and they come in the colors Black, Red, and Silver. Every Chris King hub carries a 5-year warranty.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
