    The links is not good.

    But if I read that correctly, it's the inset headset. You'd need the standard King headset 1 1/8" headset.

    The frame needs an internal headset.

    **PLEASE NOTE: This frame requires a 45/45 internal headset such as the FSA Orbit C 45x45

    hi thomas and thanks mimi1885,

    well reason for changing headset is because of the talas 32 rlc fork being used has the knobs hitting the frame. i need the 5m ck crown race to get more clearance. so therefore the need to change. but how do i know if the ck is 45x45? will the headtube break if i used someother bearing angle? sorry not too sure the terms here.

    You need

    a internal headset for the FRO.
    Chris king does NOT make a internal headset.
