I am looking at a new set of Enve 3.4 clinchers... there is a choice of hubs; DT Swiss 240 or Chris King R45... does anyone have an opinion on which to choose?

Thanks,
Anthony

CK for sex appeal.

Both are excellent, but CK is more bling.

CK if those are your choices.. personally I'm going Alchemy for my front hub and will be using a power tap for my rear... otherwise I would go alchemy again.

Chris king hubs... seriously not worth the *f##k* trouble. They sure are colourful though

You can service a DT swiss hub with your hands and a rag.

Both hubs are solid choices. As mentioned the Kings have the bling factor, but the DTs are soo much easier to service.

I'd pick the Kings if I was trying to build a colorful "out there" wheelset, but aside from that I think the DTs are a more practical choice.

DT swiss 240s is no bullshit. Never got the CK thing. Leave the ano parts in the 90's.

I like that Klien. Nothing wrong with anodised parts but DT Swiss hubs are a better proposition. In the UK they are cheaper too.
