    Great article! Amazing he struggled for so long.

    What an interesting article. They way I’always been reading cycling media gush over his headsets and BB over the years made me roll my eyes . It’s illuminating to read that the guy is a complete innovator with a back story of hardship and tenacity. Nice also that he is fixated on producing a quality product, not simply for the profit motive, but because he is seriously driven to make good stuff.
    That blue cielo is pretty stunning too.

    Really enjoyed this article. The Origins series is a great concept… overnight successes, years in the making.

    anyone know what brand/model inline seatpost that is on the blue base racer?

    Great article – but I’m confused. Did he end up making his own bearings or not? The 2nd and 3 rd para’s after “Going It Alone” heading seem contradictory?

    • James Huang

      King brought bearing production completely in-house once he got his own CNC lathe. I’ll edit that section to make it a little more clear.

    Good article, Jimmy. Is Origins going to be a recurring thing? it should be.
