    Element head angle change

    I'm looking for some help and advice.
    I was hoping to slacken my HTA on my element and was hoping someone could tell me if an angleset exists for this.

    Hope someone can help,
    Medz

    Ahh, silly me.
    It's a 2011 ( maybe '12) element 50 alloy with 26" wheels.
    I did a search but couldn't find anything.
    Thanks

    The Element 50 uses a Cane Creek Ten Series ZS44mm Top / ZS56mm Bottom tapered headset, there is tapered Angleset ZS44 / ZS56. The spec on the Cane Creek website is short of some useful information about the fork steer tube limitations. The top piece looks like it has a higher stack height as well. You could always contact Cane Creek and ask them about the fork steer tube requirements.
