    Just found out...

    ...that I could use the king +5mm lower race with my cc110 hs. It works PERFECT. I really didn't want to run the king lower cup to remedy the talas knob hitting the DT. Both headsets use 45^ contact bearings and the bearing races are apparently compatible. STOKED!

    Yep.. On my old Canfield (which had really bad clearance), I ran the Cane Creek +5mm Lower Cup with the Ventana made +7mm CK crown race and it was a perfect fit as well...

    The S3 +5mm cup/bearing works with the Ventana +7mm race?! Ohhh this could finally solve my problems on my hardtail!

    Sure does but you probably won't hear it recommended by Ventana, CK or CC... Even with the +5 lower cup and the +7 race, my 36 still hit the DT on the Canfield... The new One has addressed this though (and I've since sold this bike)...

    YIKES!

    on my rfx, I only needed a millimeter or two. The +5 prolly a little too much but I'm still really happy with it.

    Thanks for that shot! I'm trying to correct a handling issue on my hardtail. It's a modern geo designed around 80-100mm forks. But I'm in love with my oldschool Marzozzhi Z2 Atombomb and it's short chassis and shorter 72mm travel. It's a perfect fork for the use, but handling is too twitchy and the ride suffers. The S3+5 is not enough. I put a huge tire on front and short tire in back and that helps a lot, but I'd rather not run that tire up front. The Ventana +7mm race might do the trick.

    Was your One never designed for SC forks?! That looks like a rather major oversight! One of the first 2-3 things that should be addressed in a frame drawing.

    just curious, how long did you run that set up before getting rid of the frame?

    I only had the bike for a season. I sold it once I got the RFX. The new One design has way better dt clearance than my version and looks like it can take anything from a 36 to a Boxxer or 40.

    Any reasoning on why it had no clearance?

    The medium frames had better clearance. I'm guessing that the crown/dt clearance wasn't considered on the small frame.
