    Genius 10 Headset with Tall Base Plate

    Not sure where to post, but as this is about a Scott Genius 10 I thought this was a good a place as any. Here goes...

    I have purchased a 2010 Scott Genius 10 frame recently and I plan to swap all the parts from my current ride (Yeti575). I currently use a Chris King headset with a Tall Base Plate (http://chrisking.com/parts/baseplates) to get the correct Axle to Crown measurement, and I'll have to do the same with the Scott..

    The Scott frame comes with a Ritchey WCS Semi-Integrated headset - which leads me to the following questions:

    1. Is the Chris King Headset Tall Base Plate compatible with the Ritchey headset ? (the bike shop says that it is, but just like to double check with anyone who has had experience).

    2. Do Ritchey make tall base plates for their headsets ? (can't see on their website and had no response from website enquiry) BTW - I can't see anything on the Ritchey site that is described as 'semi-integrated'

    3. Would the Chris King equivalent of the Ritchey headset be the CK inset (http://chrisking.com/headsets/hds_inset) ?

    I have to wait a while to get my hands on the frame (working abroad etc) and I don't want to wait ages only to find out things don't fit etc, so I'd be grateful for any help or advice.

    Cheers,

    I have finally received the Scott Genius (waiting for a mate to bring it from the UK) and for anyone interested:

    1. Is the Chris King Headset Tall Base Plate compatible with the Ritchey headset ? (the bike shop says that it is, but just like to double check with anyone who has had experience). A. YES it is. Just checked and I can run the Chris King tall baseplate with the Ritchey headset.

    2. Do Ritchey make tall base plates for their headsets ? (can't see on their website and had no response from website enquiry) BTW - I can't see anything on the Ritchey site that is described as 'semi-integrated
    ' A. Apparently not. The regional rep (asia) did not know of anything like it.

    3. Would the Chris King equivalent of the Ritchey headset be the CK inset (http://chrisking.com/headsets/hds_inset) ? A. It is the CK Semi Integrated
