OK I review a number of threads regarding this and they all counterdict each other.
Are the KH Moment cranks not bike industry ISIS or are some ISIS hubs not actually ISIS?
I have a K1 ISIS hub which obviously works with K1 cranks but also works with TruVativ mountainbike ISIS cranks.
I have been unable to order K1 cranks and was told that KH cranks will not work. True story? Is there another manufacturer more available in the US or should I just stick with the mountainbike cranks? (they actually look kinda cool with the small chainring on)
Sounds like this topic needs further feedback. It’s possible there was a production run (or runs) of Koxx parts that was off from the ISIS spec, and that they’ve corrected this. Or not. Which were the non-standard parts, the axles, the cranks or both? And is the same true with currently available models?
Maybe someone from K1 can speak up on this as well. It can be frustrating to buy parts that don’t fit together when they should; like the many slight variations on 36" rims and tires. Most seem to work fine, but a few were a little bit off…
That makes since, but do you know what year the K1 hub is from?
We need the dealers of Koxx or someone who can get each model of the hub, and the someone else to bring in the KH and test all the KH ISIS (cause its right) on all the Koxx models and see which models it works on and which ones it doesnt. That would be nice.
For the record, KH does not comply with industry ISIS specs. I have now used TruVativ, FSA, Race Face and obviously K1 ISIS cranks on a Koxx hub with no problems. My KH hub on the other hand only seems to take KH cranks.
In this and other threads Koxx seems to be labeled as the out of spec manufacturer - I just felt it fair to note that KH’s use of 42mm bearings and out of spec ISIS cranks and hubs seems to be the one bucking the “industry standard” that would make all our lives a little easier.
It’s possible that both are somewhat out of spec. Certainly the experiences I’ve seen with putting the KH Moment cranks on the KH splined hub indicate a problem with tolerances; either the hub is too big or the cranks are too small.
