    I also have the same question in mind. I have a Jamis Parker II (not sure what year, possibly 2008 or 2009) and was hoping to run a tampered fork with this headset. Anyone know if this is possible. Thanks in advance

    From the specs both the Jamis Parker and the Jamis Parker 2 use zero stack headsets. That means that the headtube is 44mm. You can use the above mentioned Cane Creak lower cup to run a tapered fork. There is no need to change the upper cup.

    Wow, Thanks for the speedy reply you helped me out a lot. When I was Trying to figure this out I went to Cane Creeks website for their fit guide and the Parker wasn't listed as a possible model choice. So I wasn't sure. Thanks again

    Yea I imagine that the bikes does not come up in the search because that lower cup is not the standard cup for that model. It is a conversion cup to allow a tapered fork to be used.
