    Krampus with whiskey carbon fork headset compatibility?

    So- I have a black krampus frame on order, and a whiskey #9 carbon fork at home which I plan on using. Pardon my ignorance on this, but would any standard tapered headset work for it? Reason I ask, is that the stock fork the bike comes with is not tapered, but I have seen krampus builds with the whiskey fork, so I know its possible.

    Which cane creek headset will work with the whiskey fork? Thanks in advance.

    You just need another crown race for your tapered whisky. No need for a complete headset

    The krampus frameset I have on order does not come with any headset at all...and this image leads me to believe that some headset is required, no ? (im not challenging you, but truly my knowledge on headsets is barely better than nothing)

    Thanks for helping.

    Krampus with whiskey carbon fork headset compatibility?

    Ops, sorry my bad, I assume you got a built bike with a headset.
    Anyway, the headset you need is for a 44 ID headtube with ZS top and EC bottom like the Canecreek headset.

    If you wanna use Chris King, it should be the Inset7

    Hope this help
