Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

yes, the crown race is always included unless you're getting a headset secondhand, then you never know.

Chris King headsets don't have a crown race (per se), IIRC. They refer to them as a baseplate.

ok...off the point....i just want to say this site is great.....i live on an island and the only lbs doesn't really give a rat poop unless you are buying or renting a bike, forget it if you are resurrecting old dumpster bikes as fixxies.....they used to be different....i try to give them business as i should but they don't have time to order parts and just say they can't get stuff....tried to order a phil wood bb tool last week..."oh, yeah, we can't get those. we don't even have one in our shop"........huh?.... i bought the bottom bracket there 5 years ago and they installed it!....anyway, i've given up and just get stuff online which would be tough were i not able to ask stupid questions here........thanks....bob
