I wanted to buy some good-quality asian crown races, just in case my campy nuovo races go bad on me at some point. Campy races are now about $15-$25/ea NOS and for my purposes, it would be a waste to source some (1/bike) on speculation that my originals might fail.

I just had great luck getting good crown races for the Tange Levin CDS headset -



they seem like a near-identical spares (except they're black) for Tange NL-1500 aluminum headsets, as offered by Cycles De Oro :


However, thicker races for Campy Nuovo Record Headsets have not been forthcoming. Does anyone have a source for generic / thick headset crown races, for Campy Nuovo-Record headsets???

Thanx in advance,
