Yes, King made replacement axle kits for peregrine super pros. The large cone washers were the best thing to hit the wheel market in a long time. I'm thinking the reason they never hit the open market was because King held a patent on them. I'd have to double-check with the owner to be sure though. I've still got a couple of NOS king axles in the bags. They were always in my super pros back in the day.

They did hit the market, because I have one of those axle kits with the large cone washers in this rear wheel in the Hoffman Big Daddy on the left.  Also, note the 4 "Queen" pegs.   Chrome plated Araya Super 7x rims 48h, with Suzue Sealed hubs.

One thing I noticed is that if you use the large cone setup, it will only fit in a frame that has a slightly wider width in the back.  It fits in this Big Daddy and in my Taj, but it will not fit in the Homeless Mack Gen 1 nor in the '95 Homeless Mack.

I seem to remember both Taj and Joe Rich riding the King Liberty frame at certain points around 1994/1995.  The inspiration to the Hoffman Taj and the Terrible One Barcode seem pretty strong.

You misunderstood me. King *did* release this axle setup back then. It was a catalog item for them/us. However, *other* companies didn't release similar items because KING held a patent on the design. So the ones on your Hoffman are most likely King cone spacers, not Hoffman ones.

And I can also attest to the fact that the King spacers did at least fit *some* of the 2nd Gen Homeless Mack frames, because I was riding one when I lived in Fort Worth, Tx until I got my first King frame. And I always ran King axles/spacers in my superpros back then. So, I know they fit in my personal 2nd gen Mack.

. . . . .

I thought you meant "hit the open market" like King wasn't selling them on the open market. I know the axle/cone setup I have is King. 

Here's a pic of the axle in the Big Daddy dropout. I know it's not a great pic, but I'll try to measure the width of the setup, and take a few better pics.  I was honestly very surpirsed when this rear wheel (with the King cones) would not fit in either my 1993 Mack nor my 1995 Mack.  It does fit in my 1997 Taj, though.

I had a KING Bikes logo t-shirt and one point (bought from Trend Bike Source in Austin), but it's long gone !

The Kink Fat Nuts are threaded whereas the King ones were not.

Would love to find my old Dirt Bike.  It was stolen in Pompano Beach, Florida in about 1996.  It's a '92 with the block graphics on a Green frame.  Pitchforks, Slam bars, King Headset, GT (DK-style) stem and GT/Profile cranks.  Superlace hubs.  Would really love to put this back in my collection.

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

I had a 44T sprocket from King back in the late 90's.  I think it was the only one I ever saw, apart from photographs.  I ended up selling it and now wish I hadn't.  King made some really nice stuff, it's too bad they only made parts for just a few years.  This thread reminds me of my college days….

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

Yep, it's a shame it only lasted a few years. If Stuart wouldn't have been such a spoiled brat about it, it would have gone on a long time. But Stuart ended it prematurely by causing more problems that we (the US side - the actual company) could handle.

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

Yeah, I remember hearing that Steev and Stuart had a falling out.  Stuart was one of those guys I thought we'd see at the top of the Xgames podium in time, I guess he lost interest in riding as he got older.  It's a shame, he was pretty good at just about everything as I remember.

That's the word.
I should point out that I do NOT own it. It's currently in the possession of a local character of note, Reggie Styles, who had brought it to owner of the trails for a paint job.
I know Reggie rode the frame a long time ago but what I didn't know is that he got it from Stew Johnson and that Stew received it from Joe Rich. Now, a couple of the other guys confirmed this story but it could still be a load of bull...

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

Strong similarities between the T1 Barcode and the KING Liberty.  I think I remember interviews where Taj & Joe said they were influenced by the KING.

The front end of the original Barcode was almost an exact copy of the King, with the rear end design of the Taj.

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

Anyone remember the Dylan Worsely flatland frame that King was supposed to make?  I saw a few pictures of Dylan riding what I would think was the sample/prototype, which was later stolen from him at gunpoint while he was riding.  Scary.
