    SJ Tapered Head Tube with 1 1/8" Fork - Help

    I know there is an adapter and bearing kit from S that would allow me to run a 1 1/8" fork on my tapered frame. Problem is that S doesn't have the adapters in stock and they won't be available til November (or later). Can't wait that long!

    Cane Creek has options listed, but there are so many choices that it's tough to weed through. Does anyone know who makes a headset bottom section that I can order that will fit my tapered S frame and allow me to run a 1 1/8" fork?

    Found this on the Cane Creek site, but not sure if the headtube will accept this style cup, or if it needs to be different.

    Adaptor

    I have the one that came with my 10 epic frame. Just collecting dust. Don't want to give it away but you could have it at a fair price.

    The head tube adapter that I picked up doesn't work. I need a 'low bearing adapter' for the FSR frame which is different from the one that came on the Epic frame. (How about standardizing??)

    Anyone have one they want to sell?? Don't want to wait on S to get them back in stock!

    The one at this link is the deeper one. The one I need is about 2/3 as tall as the one shown. on the website.
