Classic for a reason.

If you're committed to threaded forks and quill stems, you can't beat the Chris King 2Nut Threadset Headset for adjustability and durability. The 2Nut was the original Chris King headset, and the only one the company sold for the first 14 years of the its existence. Precision-machined, stainless steel cartridge bearings turn smoothly inside the aluminum cups, and adjustments are a quick turn of the wrench away. The 2Nut is also ideal if you need to add a cable hanger or spacers to your headset stack.

  • Stainless-steel cartridge bearings
  • Aluminum cups

Last year I swapped out a threadless fork for a threaded fork on my old commuter. I went cheap with the headset and never could get it set up properly. I gave up and ordered the best. No hassle set up and super smooth.

This is my first King headset, purchased nearly twenty years ago. It's been swapped between several frames over the years and is still as smooth as the day it was first installed.

I commute to work alot in all sorts of weather and just wanted a headset that could handle the abuse of rain and snow. Got tired of re-packing my loose ball bearings with new grease every now and then. I wanted a headset that will outlast me and the steel frame it's mounted on. Chris Kings name sells itself and with such good looking and quality parts it's no wonder why.
