  • Hi,

    Bit of help really…

    I’ve got a Chris King headset that I have removed the top bearing cap from. I don’t know how I’ve done it but the green o-ring has come loose and I cannot for the life of me find a way to pop it back in.

    Anyone got any tips on how to do this?

    Cheers all.

    Is it the GripLock type?
    Then you can take it apart and reassemble:

    The GripLock is shipped pre-assembled. If it has been disassembled, fit assembly together as shown in diagram. Follow the procedure below.
    1.Place thin bearing ring O-ring into outer groove of bearing ring.
    2.Place split ring into bearing ring.
    3.Snap the bearing ring and split ring into the GripLock cap.
    4.Feed cap O-ring into the groove created by the assembled parts.

    Thanks for this. Im assuming its the grip lock as I believe the newer ck headsets these days are. I did get it in but it was hard work pushing the cap back on the carbon steerer (even after lubricating the o-ring with water)

    I’ll give it a go!

    Cheers

    yep – mine is a bit of a push too.

    Cheers Scot. It was a proper tight sod!
