Smooth quiet undramatic King quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Installs easily. Provides super smooth turning action. Looks great to boot. Not sure why the other bloke gave it 1 star when he ordered the wrong thing.

One note: king seems to make a big deal of their “griplock” tech. Seems to me that’s just an o ring. Came creek has had that for years.

Drop Set #2 incompatibility

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Purchased the dropset 2 from CK for use with an ENVE disc road fork. My bad, should have verified compatibility prior to the CK purchase. The fork requires a 33 mm crown race to interface with the headset. CK does not provide an adapter, does not know who might, and does not know of a road disc fork that might be compatible with the headset. Called Crane Creek and have ordered an adapter that CC thinks might work. If not, I'll return the CK headset and purchase a CC110.
