    CROWN RACE?! Where to buy a standard 1 1/8th Ritchey WCS crown race?

    Man talk about frustrating! All I need is a RITCHEY WCS crown race (standard press headset= 1 1/8) for a second fork I plan on swapping. (1 rigid, 1 suspension)

    Instead of having to remove/reinstall the race everytime I figured just buy a second crown race.
    Can't find one anywhere besides the International Ritchey site (that doesn't allow me to ship to the US!)
    I have used the online email form on the US Ritchey site 2 times with no response.
    Anybody have an inside contact at Ritchey? (phone number please!
    Or someplace I can buy the crown race/ base plate.

    King makes it easy...that is how Ritchey needs to start rolling.

    Thanks in advance.

    Only way I've found to get it, instead of buying complete headset.

    Link for international buyers

    Here is the link to the Ritchey CH site that seems to offer the crown race. I even tried to purchase and have it sent to the US but it is not an option. Unfortunately buying a whole new headset for the race is completely unacceptable so it looks like I will have to go with the old reliable brand. Guess I should have bought a Chris King in the first place. Ritchey...you are better than this.

    Price difference but still....

    Sure King is more expensive but not by that much. 129 vs 89. PLUS almost every other manufacturer offers replacement races. Even for CHEAP $30 races!

    2 months late....but finally get a response from Ritchey

    2 months. Wow...that is pretty bad.

    Sorry for the late reply. Have you gotten your crown race yet? If not, you can order them from any authorized Ritchey Dealer. The item number is 33-247-076 for drop-in/integrated headsets and 33-247-078 for standard. Hope this helps.
