I picked up a cheap ally frame with a semi integrated headset but I'm missing the "Crown Race" to go on the forks. It's different to a normal one as it's essentially just a 45 degree chamfer.

I'm on a budget and the rest of the headset is fine, so I don't want to buy a new one unless I absolutely have to.

oh.. it's 1 1/8"

Crown races vary a lot

You will need to get one for the headset you have as I doubt any others will fit properly

What headset is it (brand/model)?

There's very little markings on it, so I'm struggling to find out... pics are here

That would be useful... thanks.

If I have to buy a complete headset, then so be it, but if I can save the money, it could be spent on other shiny things LOL
