    Chris King headset install?



    This gap seen on this guys head tube is what is happening with my fuel ex 8 05'. Anyone out there know of the proper tool to add chamfer to the head tube in order for it to seat flush? Is this something my LBS can do with ease?

    Additional Edge Preparation:
    Another aspect of preparation that is often overlooked is the chamfer on the inside of the head tube bore (top and bottom) and the removal of any sharp edges or burrs. We recommend a chamfer width of .25mm (.010"). A clean chamfer allows the cup to be pressed without shaving metal and to sit flat against the tube face without cutting into the small radius in the corner of the cup skirt. A cut in this area of the cup may cause cracks to form over time.
