Will Cane Creek 1 1/8th adapter work with headsets pre-installed on Chinese Carbons?
I am looking at getting an eBay Chinese Carbon bike (FR216), but all Chinese Carbon bikes come with 1 1/2" reduced to 1 1/8" headsets. I have a 1 1/8" fork. I know if I had a Cane Creek headset, I could use their adapter/spacer to make it work, but will the Cane Creek spacer work on the pre-installed headsets? I.e. is this all I need to buy: Cane Creek 110-Series Conversion Crown Race | Backcountry.com

Hey, sorry for the delay -- your post didn't come up in our newsfeed quick enough.
The answer is, it depends, but not likely. If it's an IS arrangement, you just need a bearing and crown race to make it work; if you're looking at cups installed, you'll need new assemblies -- the molded seals on our crown races are an improvement over loose seals, and so might not fit other cups.
Give us a call at 800-234-2725 and ask for Customer Service, we'll talk you through the options.
