I have a set of these I may be looking to move on, bought them off here a couple off months ago but swapping the steerer for the spare pace one I have was a no-goer :cry: . Anyway, I looked over the fork last night to check condition and noticed that where the crown race seat meets the crown it doesn't sit flush. My first thought was they must be bent but taking it apart it seems dead straight (okay its angled, but its meant to be...) so is this how all sets look or is mine a particularly bad example (I'm gonna get loads for these in the classifieds now...)?

superb thanks, it looks like its normal for that kind of fitting although why these have a different fitting to yours retrobikeguy I 'm not sure, an earlier model maybe? At least now I can sell with a clear conscience.
