    Headtube With Integrated Bearing Cups

    Hello all! Quick question; does anyone know if there is a company out there that makes a 44mm headtube that has the bearing cups built in or a headset manufacturer that has internal cups not needing a crown race? I want to use a fork for a road build that has a tapered steer tube but does not use a crown race. The lower bearing just goes flush against the fork crown and then stops in the headtube. The fork I would like to use is off a Trek Domane ALR. The reason is because the fork has a lot of clearance for 28mm tires with road caliper brakes. Any ideas or help would be great. Or even if anyone knows of a carbon fork that has plenty of clearance for those size tires. The Moots carbon tapered fork is the best I have seen so far for clearance. Thank you everyone!

    what you really need is a lower headset cup designed to work with the trek bearing.
