    Cane Creek S-3+5. ...Do we need a +5-7mm crown race too?

    I've seen posts about clearance issues with some frames (mostly steel frames) between the downtube and suspension fork crowns/knobs. Do you guys think if enough people ask Cane Creek to make one, it will do any good? It sure will solve the problem. ( In many cases I think) Any thoughts on this matter?

    Think I'd be leery on an alloy steerer tube, and besides it might cheat me out of an excuse for one more bike.

    Those say they are for CK headsets

    Pretty sure I have used a CK with that particular headset.

    I have also simply used a spacer under the standard crown race on my Zion frames which had clearance issues.

    Refer my above post.
    I am not 100% sure but I think that the angle is the same.
    I think Enel tried it out too.
    I ended up getting a spacer and installing that under my Cane Creek crown race.

    Actually Cane Creek already does make a 5mm extension of sorts and looks to be a better approach than the CK or Ventana called the S3Plus5, the crown race stress is down closer to the fork crown where it should be. May be able to just use the bottom cup.

    Yes that is the headset that the OP was talking about but he is now asking about a taller crown race.

    I guess that about wraps it up. The s3+5 and a Manitou fork is about the best you can do I guess. ...Or get a new frame with the clearance you need. Ghost.
