Anybody out there who has ridden them both and can make a statement, particularly if weight is not the only issue. What about durability ??

hmmmm, i have only one thing to say, that loud clicking noise the chris king cassette hub makes i HATE IT :!: :!: :!:

i prefer silent hubs - but other than that, i think they are smooth heavy hubs :D and i would go with a tune mag 200, unless they make the same noise... :roll:

It's similar.
My personal experience is that the more louder a freehub is the more solid it is. :)

I don't know about Spada and FRM, but nearly all light hubs are more or less loud, because their light and/or voluminous hub shells are perfect resonance bodies.

I know that the King hubs are quite loud, well unless you put power through them. Still, are tune hubs as durable and smooth?

i would think the tune hubs would be very smooth with their hybird ceramic bearings. i have never used them, so this is an assumption

I wouldn't go for neither!
Chris king hubs are great but still not for Campy 10 v and only the front hub of Tune is good, the rear is breaking down again and again (bearing problems). A hub that can't deal with wather is no option for me anymore.
Think I would go for Campy Record or DT 240 S hubs.

I agree .. I've heard them before, VERY noisy. They have "72" teeth instead of the standard "24" which is why they are apparently noisier. Supposedly you can use a different lube when servicing them to make them quieter.

Someone in the club has these and he has put close to 20k on them and no problems whatsoever.

I used the 200 and the 180 and I know some people that don't have problems with the rear tune hub.
I went to the factory over four times in three years only to have them serviced under warranty.
In Germany and Holland some of the users like them but most consider them as one of the worst products ever purchased.[/quote]

If your worried about noise go AM Classic. There the quietest hubs I've ever ridden.
