What special tools needed for installing a Chris King (1 1/8") headset ?

awesome - thanks!
If you want to go whole hog, you'll want King's special adapters for the Park press http://chrisking.com/tools/tls_headset.html. I've installed a king with a friend and a hammer and a block of wood, too. Normally I use my Park press with or without the King adapters (a friend has a set of the King adapters but he's not always around...). Then there's the diy presses http://forums.mtbr.com/tooltime/mkiii-homemade-headset-tools-130069.html#post1190007...
"...the people get the government they deserve..."
I'v used the diy presses mentioned above several times without fail, and it saves a substantial amount of money.
