- Machine shop help – custom crown race
- Rusty MacSubscriber
Can anyone help recommend a machine shop that could make a custom crown race for me?
Basically I need a hope crown race that is a little taller than normal as the knobs on the top of my fork touch the frame at present. After contacting Hope they do not make them. I think i need approx 3mm additional height on the crown race to clear the frame and would like a custom race that spaces the crown up a little but allows the current sealing arrangement the crown race uses.
I could go down the route of an external lower cup (zerostack headset) but would have to get a reducer crown race for that anyway so would prefer to get a tall 1 1/8 crown race and run extra travel on my fork with little difference in the A-C over an external lower cup.
Any recommendations greatly recieved.Posted 4 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
can do a rough sketch and provide a normal race for measurements etc. The immage i have in my head is if you can immagine a crown race sat on a 3mm headset spacer but made out of a single bit of alu.
Could do that but would prefer to add 3mm to the crown race rather than 10-15mm in a lower cup so i can run a pair of forks at 130mm rather than 120mm.

Do you know if a king race would fit a Hope headset?
