Chris King ISO Disc Hubs!
Known throughout the bicycling industry for their superior performance and extreme durability, Chris King is an industry leader in high performance, high engagement hubs! Designed, hand crafted & machined right here in the United States, Chris King leads the market with their advanced hub designs. Chris King hubs offer some of the fastest engagement hubs around, with the pawls engaging every 5 degrees. This means that for ever 360 degrees of revolution, a Chris King hub is going to engage 72 times. One would think that such high technology would come with a weight penalty; however Chris King has engineered the design of their hubs to be some of the lightest around!

Custom Hand Built Wheelsets
Richards Bicycles builds some of the best hand built wheelsets in the bicycling market. Each wheel or wheelset that we sell is hand built by our professional wheel builder, who has been building wheels with us for over 25 years. He has more experience building top of the line wheels than almost any other person in the industry, and we guarantee our wheel builds to be the best that you can find. When your wheelset is built, each spoke is individually prepped using spoke-tite and tensioned by hand, ensuring a wheelset that remains strong & true for many years to come. Many other wheel builders do not go to such lengths to ensure a perfect wheel build. Together, our team has over 120 combined years of experience with bicycles and we stand by every product we sell.

Shipping & Build Time
Because all of our Chris King, Industry Nine, Hadley & Hope wheelsets are all hand built in house as they're ordered, wheels are generally built within 1 week and shipped immediately after. Generally speaking, most customers receive their wheelsets within 2 weeks of ordering their wheels; however in some instances certain color / sizes hubs may not always be immediately available which could add to shipping time. If there is going to be any added delay because of product availabity, we'll let you know immediately. Thanks for your patience and cooperation!

Months of design and testing went into our ISO disc hubset. During the development process, we adapted our machines to use larger bar stock when we make the hub shells. This manufacturing improvement allowed us to increase the spoke flange diameter significantly. A larger spoke flange spreads the spoke holes away from each other. Also, you can use shorter spokes to build a more durable, stiffer and stronger wheel

Make no mistake, these are not "disposable" parts. There are a lot of super light hubs out there, but will they still be working in 2 years? How about 5? If you ride a lot, 5 years is a lot of panic stops, high speed feathering and braking bumps. Like all of our other hubs, these carry a 5 year warranty. It is easy to make a really light hub, not so easy to make one that you can sell with confidence and back that up for 5 full years. Who else does this but King?

Custom Wheel Return / Exchange Policy & Restocking Fee's - Because custom made products such as custom bikes, custom wheelsets & custom wheels are custom designed & built to your specifications, and because custom bikes, wheels & other custom merchandise require a rather lengthy amount of time to assemble, we charge a 35% restocking fee for all custom product returns unless the item is damaged or incorrect.  Please note that "color variation" on custom wheels & bikes does not qualify as an "incorrect item", as paint color & anodized products all have some level of color variation which neither we, nor the manufacturuer, has complte control over.  We, as well as our manufacturuers, do our best to build custom products as true the advertised color shown on our website and our manfacturers websites as possible; however there is always some level of color variation which is beyond our control.  S&H will not be refunded for custom product returns unless it is defective or incorrect.  Furthermore, if you choose to return a non-defective custom wheel, wheelset or bike, the 65% credit will only be applied as a store credit towards further purchases with rbikes.com  

As you can see, using a Stan's Sealant Injector is well worth the $9.95, as it saves time and makes the installation process a whole heck of a lot easier!
Stan's Tubeless Sealant Injector

Customize the look of your bike with our WTB colored valves, which are available in brass, black, red or blue.  These valves make your bike look cooler, so you should buy them. A stepped lock nut further adds compatibility among various drillings and a smooth pump interface and removable core make setting beads a cinch.
