Park Tool CRS-1 Crown Race Setting System
Park Tools has taken a fresh new approach to crown race installation. Traditionally, a mechanic would slam a tube down onto the bearing surface to "set" the race in place. The CRS-1 offers a different approach that offers faster, safer, and more precise installation. The bearing surface is spared a direct hit by using different inserts to ensure proper fit on the race. Choose the correct insert then slide the tube over the fork tube and into the top end of the insert. Using a hammer, tap firmly on the end cap of the tube and seat the race into its proper place safely and accurately. The CRS-1 set includes one universal setting tube, three 1" inserts, and three 1-1/8" inserts.
