- Replacement Chris King headset bearings
Just changing over my forks and giving the headset a once over and noticed that a few of the bearings have broken up in the bottom race. Strange thing is the steering was only a bit rough!
I’m looking for replacement bearings but can’t seem to find any retailers for them. Anyone know where I could find these in the next few days…?Posted 6 years ago
I’ll give chrisking.co.uk a call in the morning and see what they say. Seems crazy the bearings aren’t replaceable, 10 year warranty or not.
I’ve removed the retaining ring and fished out the loose balls from the race – if I can get replacement ones it should all fit together again perfectly…Posted 6 years ago
d45yth: yes, but I need the bearings for a big ride this Friday!
Tony: that’s what I thought. No bearing is indestructable, not in a £100 headset anyway. And I’m loathe to return the whole lot for a service as its in a light steel frame and I don’t want to deform the headtube with unnecessary removal.Posted 6 years ago
They share a premesis (or certainly did, not sure if they still do), but they’re not actually the same business. Much like Stif/Jungle back in the day. Obviously Bromley have excellent stock, as they can wander upstairs to get any CK parts they need, but they’re not the same.
Like I say though – Evolution often aren’t that helpful, if you don’t get the answer you want, try CK direct.Posted 6 years ago
