Head tube and bottom bracket shell preparation are important and often overlooked elements related to headset and bottom bracket performance. Chris King reaming and facing tools ensure the critical dimensions necessary for optimum performance and longevity are ready for installation. These shop-specific tools are designed and built in-house, in Portland, OR.
Chris King reaming and facing tool kits are available in two different configurations, each catering to a specific range of head tube and bottom bracket sizes. Note that the Large Diameter kit requires pieces from the Small Diameter kit to function properly.
The three sided cutting inserts are titanium nitride coated carbide and can be easily rotated to extend insert cutting life.
