Cane creek has a headset finder tool-->Headset Fit Finder
This problem can be solved with any of the following:
Lots of beer and researching on google.
A pair of calipers. You can use the back end of em to measure depth...
Or a hammer.
I'd go for the hammer my self.
Maybe I am asking the wrong question because I don't know enough to know the right question. I just don't know much about headsets at all. I've done some googling, but haven't gotten to beer or hammers yet. I used the cane creek headset finder, but couldn't tell if that headset was what I needed. Basically I'm trying to fit a Lefty fork with 163mm clamp spacing on a frame with a 160mm headtube.
I believe the frame to be an integrated headset (Scott Aspect 30). Do all integrated headsets sit flush with the headtube the way the one in picture does?
I believe you are looking for is referred to as an inset headset.
With that beig said, I don't know if a regular inset will work for you.
When in doubt call the King of headsets: Chris King
