Having problems with headset on my Pinarello, the crown race on fork is badly worn and needs replacning.
Has anybody changed one of these? And where can I find a replacement?
2005 model btw.
Thanks in advance.

    Why not just buy a whole replacement headset? If the crown race is stuffed, expect the lower bearings are too.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    You need a crown race removal tool, and another tool to seat a new race. If you do not even know what type of tools to buy, I would take it to a bike mechanic.

    Thanks for that, would love to change headset but am stuck with bearing arrangement (Pinarello`s own) in head tube and therfore crown race to suit.
    Have looked at changing lower bearing but headtube I.D limits my options...
    Thanks again.
