    I could use some advice about upgrading my hub.

    First off, I'm running truvativ hussefelt cranks ( :greddy: ) and and an xt rear hub ( :eek: ) with a rear rhyno lite xl rim and an even thinner rim up front. Now, I'm gonna be going with an alex dx 32 drilled front and rear, but should I go with a front freewheel or chris king? Any pros or cons to either one?

    The benifit of the king is that you don't have to buy a new crank.If you get the WI you need oviosly a new crank and a fixed hub which weighs just about as much as a king.
    The King hub is proven The WI V.1 was not the most indestructable part.
    Time will tell how well the V.2 holds up.The FT FW limits you on your choice of cranks ,but gives a lot of extra clearance .

    It doesn't necessarily limit clearance, I run a track cog on front free wheel cranks with a chris king, so I get 18 tooth clearance and 72 points, but so does the new freewheel. Time will tell.
