true but nicolai actually recommended a headset with an insertion depth of a minimum of 22mm ... i guess it then depends on the individual to decide if they wish to stay with recommended components spec for warranty purposes ...

The issue is that steelsets are virtually impossible to remove once installed.

You better have a damn good warranty on your headset if it can't be removed, and there's any chance the frame will outlast it.
I had a similar excruciating experience. I had to remove an e13 reducer headset with deep insertion from a frame. I used a homemade steel removal tool. It was physically exhausting. I literally crushed the steel pipe from hutting it with a 2 pound sledge hundreds of times. Not to mention I had to take a nap and a vicodin after I was done.
