We've taken a fresh new approach to crown race installation. Traditionally, a mechanic would slam a tube down onto the bearing surface to "set" the race in place. The CRS-1 offers a different approach that offers faster, safer, and more precise installation.
The bearing surface is spared a direct hit by using different inserts to ensure proper fit on the race. Choose the correct insert then slide the tube over the fork tube and into the top end of the insert. Using a hammer, tap firmly on the end cap of the tube and seat the race into its proper place safely and accurately.
The CRS-1 set includes:
one universal setting tube
three 1" inserts
three 1-1/8" inserts

Listen....I recently added this to my collection of tools with the assumption that it would work like it was suppose to... I cant tell you the ease in which I matched the correct adapter to the race 2 taps with the new park tool HMR-4 and done, blam, finished, no more "BS". This is a must, so simple, so easy seriously! I know that you can use all sorts of crap laying around the house but if you care the about quality of your bikes you should care about the quality of your tools. Thanks Park Tool for another awesome tool, u guys rock hard.
I got tired of fudging my way through installing new headsets and the CRS-1 is one of the tools I bought. It performs perfectly - no more hammering directly on the crown race, trying to not slip and damage the fork or the race itself. The Park CRS-1 comes with adapters to work with most 1" and 1 1/8" crown races, including the Chris King No-Threadset race I just mounted.
