    Ventana Plus 4 or Plus 7 lower race on a DUC?

    Hello all,

    Anybody know if the Ventana "Plus 4" or "Plus 7" lower crown race would work on a Maverick DUC? Also is it specifically designed for Chris King headsets? I've got a Nomad with a DUC on the front, which I love, but I would like to expierment with a slightly tall A~C, resulting in a slightly higher BB.

    Any feedback is appreciated, thanks.

    Call Ventana but I do believe that is is designed for Chris King headsets only. It's a similar crown race with a taller base. If it does fit, try the 7mm. The 4mm will result in a difference probably impossible to distinguish from a regular race.

    I called Ventana and Maverick

    Ventana seamed to think it would be ok, but didn't have any expierence. I'm waiting on a call back from Maverick now. I'll post it up when I hear back.

    Well....

    I never heard back form Maverick. But after talking to my LBS, it seams like wasn't a good idea anyway.

    #1. Such a minor stack height change won't effectivily raise the BB
    #2. seams that it may "void the king warranty"
    #3 The taller race may result in greater leverage and be able to actually mechanically losen itself off the small lip on the bottom of the lower crown.

    So, it seams it was never really going to make a difference anyway. My LBS said that as a general way to look at it is that an additional inch (longer fork) will typically raise the BB about .25 inch.
