    Yes, me too. Although I assumed that the crown race had stretched as it had been fitted quite a few times. I just cut the crown race and it all works fine.

    Now you’ve posted this I wonder whether it was the steerer. Anyhows- all fixed.

    Just got some Exotic Carbon 29er forks.

    Tried to put my chris king crown race on, and it just sinks on without any pressure on it! 🙁

    Seems like they haven’t left enough material around the steerer tube for it to stick on. Fooey.

    Mine was fine but I never tried my King headset on it (as I didn’t want it to eat another steerer) But Hope FSA and Cane Creek were all normal.

    My King “reducer” crown race was a suitably tight fit – but then it’s a big chunk of metal.

    Edit (for Northwind) it’s a new-style King headset

    Joe – fwiw, my loose-until-cut crown race was a fsa steel one. On reflection I think the steerer was too small as I just remembered that the previous headset (ritchey) on the same fork also needed a cut crown race.
