    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?
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
