    1 1/8" Cane Creek Angleset Campaign

    (Taken from the DH forum)

    Lets call CC and let them know there is a market for them. 828-684-3551

    http://dirt.mpora.com/news/dirt-excl...-campaign.html


    So it appears that Cane Creek IS able to do an angleset for standard 1 1/8" headtubes and standard 1 1/8" steerers....but they need input from the industry that people would actually buy them. Ever wanted to change the head angle of your 1 1/8" frame +/-1 a degree...well here's your chance

    Think of the possibilities...want G2 geometry to run a G2 fork...and mimic a Fisher/Trek?
    ....want a steeper HA like a Niner? Or slacken your Niner?
    ....want something slacker for an AM bike?

    I wonder how they would do it? I mean, there isn't much room to play with between the steerer tube, and the head tube.

    I am getting the impression it's only .5, in which case I completely understand their reluctance to offer it.

    You can get a .5 HA change by staring really hard at your bike for a few minutes.

    EDIT: Okay, it looks like 1 which is harder to accomplish just by staring.

    Might look similar to what this guy made for his Turner. The concentric cups would be in a normal 1 1/8" headset, just a slightly bigger one. If they move both the bottom and the top cup .5 degree, you don't have to move the concentric cups that much to get a full degree of change...The current Angleset doesn't move the bottom cup at all, it's dead center and all the movement is in the top cup. But if you move the upper and the lower cup a little, it equals a lot and enough to get a degree or more.

    angle changes..

    below 1 degree are not that significant, I have experimented with up to 1.7 degrees and ended up with that.
    44mm zerostack headtubes would allow for much more.

    There would definitely be a market for this.
    BTW, I 've been staring at my Sultan for about a year now and the HA hasn't changed a bit.

    Very interested. I had a bike custom made several years ago for a 38mm offset fork. Now it doesn't play well with the current offset 45-46 fork. 1 Degree would dial me in.

    I don't think we are talking about integrated headsets. Move the headset outside the head tube where it belongs and there is all the room you want.

    Full blown DH forks and frames are still using the straight 1.125 steer and I'm sure they would love an angleset. However a fair number of those bikes have adjustable HTA built into the frame. I still think it would be a great upgrade for somebody on a budget DH frame/fork.

    I contacted them about a month ago and was told that they have been prototyping but have no plans at this time to produce it. You should definitely contact them and express your interest in one.

    I ended up getting on of Saar's headsets for my Inbred. With a 1.5 degree change I now have about a 68.5deg HA (unsagged) using a 100mm Marz, and without a really tall BB either since pushing the fork out dropped the BB height somewhere around 1/4" for me. It's really cool to feel what just a HA change and slight BB height change can do to a bike, versus trying out a slacker HA on a completely different bike. This thing feels way more confident and competent on rough trails and on drops. It's not the sagged or unsagged HA that matters, but the fact that my HA no longer approaches 74deg when I'm deep into the fork's travel

    Subject: Angleset for ZS44/44 Availability

    Hello,

    I've read that Cane Creek would soon be coming out with a Angleset for ZS44/44 - can you confirm and possibly provide a release date? I'm quite happy with the Angleset I purchased for a tapered headset, and would like to get the 44/44 for a different bike.

    Kind regards,
    Antonio
