    Headset Help

    Wasn't really sure what forum was appropriate but there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable, and occasionally helpful , folks in here. Does anyone know of a headset for the 44mm ID headtube that fits a 1 1/8" and also sits flush with the headtube? I've got one from Cane Creek that fits a 1 1/2" (or whatever size Cdales SI headtube is).
    I've emailed Cane Creek but haven't heard anything.
    Thanks

    You need a tool to measure, take ur own measurements and buy what you need.
    I just converted my bike to a tapered steerer fork with a cane creek bottom adapter to convert the lower 1 1/8th to 1.5 i had no listing, just measured out what i needed.

    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.

    Choose wisely!

    I'd go for the hammer my self.

    Headset Help

    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?
    Thanks

    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
