I took an old claud butler 1" fork into a bike shop asking them to face the crown to fit a new tange headset I had. The race on the crown wouldn't go on.
They were a little hesitant to do it suggesting to leave the frame too and they might have a headset that would fit.
Turned out it needed an Italian headset which they fitted, so all good.
They charged me £50 for labour which in a state of shock paid. It wasn't until I left did I think about it more. It doesn't take more than an hour to fit a headset. They didn't even have to take the old headset out. Have I been over charged?
