    did you get your crown race with your headset?

    Odd, this seems to have fallen off the front page. I'd hate for andy7t2's question to go un-noticed and unanswered.

    WHAT WAS THE QUESTION AGAIN

    I'm warming to this – anyone know what the maximum number of posts on a single thread the site can support? Anyone want to find out?

    there's over 1200 on the 'global warming thread'…although I daren't open that one in case I get sucked into the argument.

    I'm more comfortable with crown race questions tbh.

    How much is the "global warming thread" contributing to global warming?

    I did look at it, but it seemed to be a load of hot air from uninformed pontificators.

    PS Should only the pontiff be allowed to pontificate?

    Back to the question – is it because of EU rules that some headsets might be sold without crown races?

    And then theres the issue of the carbon offset from producing the crown race.

    Sorry, do we have a definitive answer to this yet?

    I had a head set once! But lost the crown race?

    We are currently discussing the crucial carbon offset allowances in crown race inclusion strategies. Or something.

    Hope to have a definitive answer shortly, probably around 2015.

    I have just ordered a head set which mentions no crown race inclusion or indeed exclusion purely as a controlled experiment to which hopefuly we may have an answer. I will also shout and swear if there is not one included with said head set. I shall then report my findings on this here thread.

    The Swede – Is one headset a fully representative sample though?

    TheSwede

    I will in time order several in order to maintain a level of control in the experiment.

    How does your bike steer ? Hoping for a witty response like the "how does your dog smell" joke. And try and come up with something better than "awfully"

    How does your bike steer ?

    By looking down it's nose and curling it's lip

    (It being slightly dyslexic and all…….)

    By leaning into the corner and putting my left foot down. 😉

    Left you say ? Are you certain ? What if it's a right hander ? Are you insane ? With no crown race ? With your reputation ?

    Any conclusive proof about the need for a crown race yet?

    I once bought a crown race (nice Hope one it was) and it didn't include a headset.

    Extra large crown race action on ch5…needs a service and some food.

    Was that a left or right handed crown race

    Or even backhanded.

    Is a crown race how they decide the next monarch?

    Decorative jewellery perhaps?

    The Swede – how is the experiment progressing? Any early results yet?

    Early indications are leaning towards there being no headset or crown race on the kitchen table when I get home tonight. This is in my opinion no form of an answer to the not at all stupid and reoccuring question. Which came first. The head set or the crown race.

    But their absence from the kitchen table doesn't prove they do not exist. The point here is whether they exist together or not. And whether a headset comes with a kitchen table (stripped pine or oak).

    Well, my headset was in the post box. Not on the kitchen table as planed thus throwing to experiment all to cock. Any one could have slipped the crown race in there with out me knowing. This experiment is now null and void. The headset has however now been fitted to a bicycle frame and it seems to allow the forks / bars to turn with much less resistance than when the headset is fitted without the crown race. Does this mean anything? I don't know!

    Steady there, Swede. We don't want to spill onto 4 pages now, do we?

    Certainly not.

    I once sold one without a crown race. Sold it cheap obviously and it was a Hope one so easy to get a new one. I kept it to make it easy to swap between rigid and bouncy forks on the HT as that had another Hope headset in it.

    Page 4 yet?
