    5mm spacer between lower headtube and aheadset?

    Does anyone know who makes a 5mm spacer so my fork won't hit my down tube.
    I have seen the spacer from CK but hoping there was another option.
    I have a 2008 fox 36 Talas on a 2006 SC Nomad.

    You can get a Ventanna 7mm race (think it also comes in 3 or 5mm too). There is also a headset with the stops already built into it (can't recall who makes it).

    That puts the space between the fork and the race.
    Does anybody make a spacer that goes between the frame and aheadset?

    reset racing from germany solved my problem. super long press in shaft on lower hs cup.
    And they made a spacer for me in 6.5mm. A spacer can every machineshop make. But dont use a short press in shaft. If its only presst in like 4mm into the frame, it will deform the head tube after a while.... then you have a problem.

    otherwise use trickstuff hs with itegr, stoppers. ( trickstuff comes from some porsche developers )http://www.trickstuff.de/index.php?p=d42de1

    biketuna, do a search for canfield the one + headset and you'll find what you are looking for. I recall them talking about this as I was researching that frame a while back.
