    27+ Configuration Niner Headset - ZS Lower Cup

    Can someone tell me if these replace the lower headset cups that press into the frame to correct the geometry from 29" to 27+ wheels?

    15mm stack lower cup for Niner ZS headsets - corrects geometry when using 27.5" Plus wheels

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd be interested in knowing also.

    If you have to knock the old lower cup out and press a 15mm one in that is not something you want to do more than once or twice so would it not be a good solution if you want to be swapping between 29 and 27.5+ wheels with any regularity.

    I put a Works Components -1 degree Angle headset on my 2013 RIP 9 when I converted to 27.5 plus. I wanted a slack HA. I now have a set of 29" wheels and I swap between the two wheel sets with the same headset. No issues, it rides fine.
