A little while ago, I inquired about CKs compatibility with Campag 10 conversion cassettes. About 20 emails (got opinons from Chris King, Wheels Mfg., Nimble Wheels, Sheldon Brown (btw. does that guy EVER sleep??)) and numerous test rides later, the verdict is in, and most everyome knew it all along: Ye cain't doo eet!!
The freehub body on the CKs is simply too small. You will either lock the cassette against the drive side hub flange, touch the spokes on the rear derailleur or won't be able to tighten down your smallest cog.
If you have any other self-test results, please post them, as I am still holding on to my beloved Kings...against all odds.
