    CC headset question

    Hello all.

    I know with the Helius CC it is ok to use a 12mm insertion headset, but does anyone know if it will accept a 22mm deep insertion headset? From memory my FR and ST had internal machining so they would, but with the spec sheet saying 12mm I'm wondering if it will only accept 12mm?

    The reason I ask is that I will be using 140mm forks and would prefer the added strength, if at all possible. It seems to me the 22mm insertion stipulation on the heavier duty frames must be down to the anticipated use, rather than an inherent weakness.

    A deep insertion headset is not a requirement for the Helius CC so it's unlikely the headtube will be reamed to a sufficient depth. You should check when your frame arrives but it should not be necessary.

    I've got a Hope one in mine with 140mm Marzocchi 44 Micro Ti's.

    I also think that Mugtree has 140mm Sektors in his CC with a standard Hope Headset
