    This, but to order a new one you have to specify the steerer diameter, probably 1" or 1 1/8" and whether you have a threaded or unthreaded steerer.

    Thanks Steev. It was much too early to give a detailed answer to an undetailed question.

    Let's leave race out of this and stick to the topic.

    That's what the part is called. It sits on the crown. The balls go on it, then the cup, which is in the steer tube, sits on those.

    Yes, I know. You didn't get my bad joke.

    I do have a feeling the OP is asking about the headset in its entirety though, not just one part.

    Yeah, I got it, but the OP has one post under his belt, so I know he wants a distinctive and precise answer.

    As I stated, the race, and as the diagram says, crown race. What do I know?
