About Chris King

Q & A


Normally this is called a crown race, to sit on your forks where they fit into the bottom of your headset.  With nearly all quality headsets using sealed bearings, it strictly isn't a race any longer (a race is somethings the bearings run on, whereas now bearings are all enclosed in the sealed bearing unit), so naturally Chris King refuse to call it a race, being the highly technical engineers they are.

Introducing the Baseplate; same job, different name.  Well, same job apart from made to Chris King's exacting standards that is.  These get a lot of abuse, so it's worth changing every now and then to have a nice shiny new one.

Available in different sizes to suit your forks, or to convert narrower forks to a larger headset (i.e. 1 1/8" forks to 1.5" headset).
