    I need a short stack height headset

    Hey all!

    Does anyone know of any conventional 1 1/8" threadless headsets that have a stack height shorter than 27mm? So far I have found that Cane Creek has the S8 (27.4 mm stack height), but I need less - a lot less.

    Anyone have any info here?

    PATIA!

    Some of the cane creek headsets can be run without the top cap which can cut down a couple of mm. This is a pic of my bike, and it has a 1.5 headset, but the top bearing and compression wedge are from a cane creek headset (can't remember which model) sitting in an E13 reducer cup. I don't run any sort of cover on top of the bearing, just the compression wedge. Same setup on my dh bike.

    Just thought I'd mention it, in case it spurs any ideas.

    The rare Avid Saago has the record I think. Damn, second time I've thrown out the Race Face Diabalous stem for a recommendation tonight, but low stack height for sure.
