    The last I heard from Chris King -- and this info is about a year old -- is that they would not produce the Perdido until they first signed on a large OE order from a bike company.

    I haven't heard of any bike company picking up their standard.

    Personally, I think King shot themselves in the foot by going oversized. Rather than requiring custom reaming (and, necessarily, a custom cutter) of a Zero-Stack headtube to make the Perdido fit, they could have adapted their cup dimensions to the existing Zero Stack standards.

    It's a shame, because given the lack of aftermarket ZS options, Kings would have been solid sellers (FSA and Cane Creek are the only decent, easily obtainable choices).
