Fork Crown Race replacement---What and where

I've got a frame I picked up used which came with a Ritchey WCS headset installed. The fork crown race was not included, though, so.....

Do I specifically need a Ritchey WCS crown race, or are there generic ones out there that will do the job? And in either case, where can I find what I need?

Thanks.

Thanks.

As an example, see: http://www.jensonusa.com/search/?s=crown+race

I can't comment on compatibility so I'll that to someone else.

If it was a simple ball bearing arrangement I'd say you could probably get away with using an appropriately sized generic crown. But it appears that the WCS uses angular contact bearings in a cartridge arrangement.

Did you try contacting Ritchey directly?
