    + 12mm Chris King

    "Back in the day" when this 29er thing was getting sorted, (some) small frame 29ers required raising the front to get the clearance allowing a suspension fork to pivot 360* without hitting the downtube. This was done with the Chris King +12mm race. I have cobbled together such a bike for a friend and am in need of that race. Anyone know of any left-over stock anywhere? Have one you want to move maybe?

    I dont recall a 12mm one...King still offers the +5mm "high five" or Tall baseplate.

    If you can find one, Ventanna made a +7mm baseplate that worked with King HS.

    Or, will this work? REAL WORLD CYCLING HEADSET ADAPTER/EXTERNALIZER

    Perhaps I'm not remembering correctly. I have a Cane Creek +5 on there now and it's just a little shy of the needed clearance. The RCW appears to be for the large headtube. I bet the Ventana would be enough though, thanks.
