    Lynskey Pro 29er w/ Zero Stack Headset?

    Short version of the story:

    Have an opportunity to take advantage of an excellent deal on a Pro 29er frame. I'll have to use all of the parts off my existing ride to build it up, can't afford new stuff right now on top of the frame cost.

    My steer tube (Fox F29) is cut too short for the Lynskey frame. The Lynskey has an unusually long head tube compared to many bikes on the market. So, there's a possibility that a zero stack headset will solve the problem, but I'm concerned about messing the the bike's geometry and effectively increasing what is already a fairly steep head tube angle.

    Any thoughts?

    Sell your fox and buy a new one.

    I did the short stack (Crank Brothers licensed from Cane Creek) for a cut too short Fox F29 RLC. It worked as the headset has the shortest stack of all headsets. Too bad the headset sucks ;-) Had to go back to King.

    Get a new stanchion crown steer assembly from fox. Should set you back about 225 or so...cheaper than a new fork.
