    Sm. Nomad, 4mm or 7mm crown race?

    Building a small Nomad for a cust. He says he needs a taller lower crown race so that the fork clears the downtube.
    With a King Headset which lower crown race should I use? Ventana makes a 4mm and a 7mm for the King HS for this case, but not sure which on is enough/overkill.

    Thanks SantaCruzians!

    I would think it depends on the fork...

    While the customer may always be correct, why do you think the 3mm is a make or break situation for you? What fork is it?

    For what it's worth he said to use the 7mm option.

    SC inform me to run a 4mm for my Fox36 Talas=WRONG!
    Need to go with the 7mm Ventanna(King) race instead.

    If I would have known I would be jackin up my front end by 7mm, I would have gotten a MED Nomad instead of the SMALL.
