Sette ST-01 Crown Race Setting Tool
If you are looking for a precise and easy way to install a crown race onto your new fork, the Sette ST-01 is the tool for you. The set comes with a universal setting tube and the inserts that allow for 1 and 1-1/8" placement. Choose the correct insert, and slide the Setting tube over the Steerer tube and into the top end of the insert. Use a hammer to firmly tap the end of the Setting tube and seat the crown race in place. The Sette ST-01 will ensure that your press fits are even and straight every time.
This has worked great for our shop, and the price is definitely right. But like Chad mentioned above, we've also had the setter get 'stuck' or clamped on to the race/fork. We were able to get it off, but it was a bit of a hassle. 4 stars for the same reason.
Works as intended. For 5 stars offer a one piece version in a choice of size...the 1 1/8 insert on mine had to be smacked with a mallet to get it off the fork after seating the crown race.
