This is just the beginning of a project I’m documenting with Chris King and Argonaut Cycles. We’ll start off with something extra special, the Chris King I8 headset. Here’s the latest from Chris King:
“The Chris King I8 headset was developed for 1-1/8″ to 1-1/4″ tapered steerer tubes that are quickly becoming the standard for performance oriented road and cyclocross bicycles. We worked with locally produced Argonaut Cycles to develop a headset with seamless visual design that will elegantly interface with the head tubes found on modern carbon bicycles. In doing so we invested the I8 with the same precision performance and durability that is built into each and every Chris King component.
Carbon frames are most definitely here to stay and we wanted to make sure that our riders had the option of a Chris King headset for their future dream bike. A headset that avoids the deleterious wear effects that occur with the use of integrated headset designs.”
I can’t wait to share more of this exciting project with you! Expect much more to come… For now, head to the Argonaut Facebook and await updates!
