Installation

The WiseCracker LITE is our most popular product offering. It replaces a standard 1-1/8" headset spacer common to most modern bicycles and installation is very fast.  Please support your local shop if you have any confusion with the instructions.

  1. Remove headset top cap
  2. Remove stem
  3. Remove (1) headset spacer and install the WiseCracker opener.  (Note: Chris King headsets come with a thin, white plastic spacer to reduce headset creaking noise. Installing the WiseCracker over this white spacer will enable your opener to swivel!)

  5. Re-install headset top cap
  6. Center handlebars/stem/opener
  7. Verify stem/headset/fork assembly has no play
  8. Properly tighten and torque all mounting hardware
