Are those hand-made?


Scott's hands were involved. And I had a hand in marking them up and mailing them back. So yes ;) :lol:

got sold an incomplete CK threadless headset off here with missing crown race. :evil:

so while i was at it, picked up a threaded 2nut kit as well. :roll: what i thought was a reasonable deal, ended up becoming quite expensive in the end after all was said and done. :x

really should get to sorting out the frame instead of continuing to collect parts. :P

i selected the in stock notification and then followed up with an email to their customer service email. originally no ETA given, but then in a week they sourced a silver kit i needed. Had them add the crown race to the order and they sent a PayPal invoice directly to me. Paid and got it through the mail in a week or so.

think i'm in good standing with them as i've ordered a number of bits from them and have always gotten good service from them. i've picked up items from spare crown races, to a 1" ti threadless HS conversion kit for the Merlin. :D
