    K9 cups in a Highline?

    Has anyone tried K9 angle reducing cups in a highline? I have a large 5" headtbe highline looking at K9's web site they should fit.
    I would switch from my current 1.5 totem to a Boxxer. This should slacken the bike a tad and lower the bb as well. Im a little apprehensive about the kit, how well stays put and alignment issues. It would be great to here about any first hand experience.

    They should work fine in the HL as long as they make a 5" headtube specific version. Alignment is the installers job, but once they are installed I'd be really surprised if they ever moved. I've removed a lot of 1.5 headset reducer cups from frames and they are very difficult to get out. You have to hit them very hard with a big hammer.
