asked by: a guest The Chris King headset I have has an outside dia of 1-3/8". Should I buy the RT-2?
anwered by: jrichard When referring to headset size, they are referring to the steer tube diameter. This tool will fit headsets that are built for steertubes with diameters of 1", 1 1/8" and most 1 1/4".

This piece I must say I truthfully have not used yet but holding it in your hands you know its legit. I have and will always be a huge fan of Park Tool and with the recommendations from more than a few good mechanics I know it was a piece I had to have. Everyone has beer a flat head and a hammer, but I got my RT-1 and will have plenty of time to drink cause removing my headset cup will take less than a second.
Summed up: Free yourself frustration and using crap laying around your house, pick up a RT-1 you wont regret it.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

This is unbelievable form meets function. WOW! I have been trying to rehab unwanted and junked bikes this year mostly for charity. A few of the bikes are too far gone, or would be better served as parts for other more durable bikes. So I have stripped a few junk frames down of all their parts for scrap metal recycling... This tool takes a boring five minute job (not too hard) and makes it a 5 second job. It works so well, like it is supposed to, that it is actually satisfying to use the tool. I made quick work out of removing the cups out a couple bikes in the scrap bin just to try it out. Now they can be used again. Awesome. Can't tell entirely from the packaging, but I hope its one of the park tools still made in the USA.
