Older 01-06 Hope NoThreadset 1 1/8" Headset Crown Race


Retro Guru
I have the newer post-'07 XC headset crown race with a split race, this crown race isn’t compatible sadly with the older design and not recommended. Has anyone used the 07 type on the 1st Gen headsets and what are the results, does it still tighten and fit?

Any aftermarket options that will fit like Chris King?

Thank you

Have you tried the newer one?
I've never had any issue using the 'wrong' crown race with a headset so long as everything is for sealed bearings. And its all standard 1 1/8" stuff obv.
