Chris King Announces Limited Purple Anodized Component Run- by Guitar Ted
Anodized mountain bike components in various colors have been around since the dawn of the modern mountain bike. (Anyone remember Ukai rims? ) But the height of the anodized craze was probably the mid-90′s when you could get components from a wide range of manufacturers in a myriad of colors. Probably the most memorable of those 90′s hues was “ultra-violet purple”.
Like all things fashion oriented, anodized components went the way of grunge music and a time of “black anodized only” “dark ages” descended upon the mountain biking populace. Well, that is unless you rode with Chris King Precision Components. They have famously kept waving their magic anodizing wand over head sets, hubs, and now bottom brackets for all those “dark years”. Now Chris King is bringing back a much asked for hue- Purple.
