    New question here. Cane Creek Head tube adapter ???

    Hey! Has anybody put a Cane Creek EC44/40 ,Which allows a Tapered fork 1.5 to 1-1/8 to fit on a 1-1/8 head tube frame , EC44/40 goes on the bottom and a compatible top headset like zerostack . If anybody has done this this let me know . Thanks

    EC44 lower will only work with a 44mm (aka zero stack/semi integrated) headtube. I don't believe Yeti has ever used 44mm on the bottom of their headtubes.

    If you have a tradtional 34mm headtube bike then no you can not fit a tapered fork. As of know there are no lower headsets made for that application. The lower cup would have to be really really lower to allow for the taper of the steertube.

    What bike do you have?
