Simply put if you do not use the right tools to install your Chris King Headset is will not work properly. Unlike headsets that use a drop in style bearing that can be removed during installation, the Chris King headset bearings are pressed into place which means during install they are along for the ride and don't like to be beaten with a 2x4 or whatever else is laying around in your garage or basement.
If you use the stepped cone that is included with the Park Tool HHP-2 headset press you will destroy the bearings and render the headset to desk art duty.
This kit turns your Park Tool HHP-2 into a Chris King pressing machine. The kit also includes adaptors for the Park Tool CRS-1 or CRS-15 crown race setting tool which also needs unique adaptors for Chris King''s base plates.
Kit includes adaptors 1-1/8" headsets only
Made from hard anodized aluminum
