I am to get my Orange Clockwork back from it's respray next week :D

She has 1" ahead forks and I'll need a 1" headset for her, I do have a Ritchey Logic WCS one available but I'm not sure it is what I want to put on her. I would love a Chris King but cannot afford £100 at the mo.

What would you put on a Clockwork if you couldn't get the King :?: :?:

Thanks you

Alison

Orange used to fit Ritchey's on factory built bikes. A nice touch if you can't get a King.

Ive been looking for a Chris King for a while, but couldn't pay £100 for one. But I have found a US Seller on Ebay that is doing them for £62.85 posted. Here's the link:

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Aspire-VeloTech

He looks trusted, and who can argue with a Chris King for that price? It seems there are so many fakes on ebay I wouldn't buy a second hand one and these guys look official. I'm gonna order one for my Pace.

Damnn, now that is a good price. Do you think the mango would go with the orange, Orange decals and the black frame

fit the Ritchey that you have - its only a headset! £70 can be spent on other areas of the build then (IMO)

Such wise words, but it is so nice, and they are a damn good headset. :)

Of course you are both right and really I should resist and spend money on all the other bits I need. :D
