Hi all

So ive got my new Mmmbop frame, a superstar bambino reducer headset and tora 318 forks but as this is my first ever build forgot about a crown race. Question is are they easy to fit, do they just press over the steerer tube or do you need a press to put them on??

Frame is going to LBS to have headset fitted so not sure if I should get them to fit the crown race and forks for me at the same time??

    as it is part of the headset get them to do it.

    they can be press on with fingers if a split race of knocked on with a tool if not.

    Read Parktools. for more infos.

    It comes with the headset

    Get them to fit the fork as well as the headset.Take your forks & stem & spacers to the shop.

    If in doubt about how high you want to run the bars go higher, you can always move the spacers around to drop the height if you want to.

    Do you have the tools for the rest of the parts you will be fitting?
