28 February 2009 - 13:49Purple….
During one of my recent phone conversations with the folks at King, I had to inform them that I was very disappointed that I had to put a different headset on my bike. The don’t make purple, and I’m on a purple kick. They were very understanding and quite apologetic.
I had been speaking to one of their customer service folks that I’ve known for a while, he’s been to Waterbury (and more importantly, The Alchemist), and we have a great working relationship, based on sweet bike parts and beer. Well, not 2 hours pass, and he called back with some news for me.
Turns out that there were a couple of purple odds and ends were laying around in the warehouse. King has not made purple since 2004, but it seems there were just enough bits to make 3 headsets. SICK!
So here they are, 3 brand new, anodized purple Chris King headsets.
Unfortunately, they still have no plans to start making purple parts again, but rest assured, I’ll be one of the first to know when they do.
