    Turner Homers I need help w headset insertion depth

    I'm in process of specing a headset for a 2011 Med Sultan and would like to use the Chris King I7 headset with a tapered steertube fork. I know the 2011 frames use a 44mm headtube and will accept a Can Creek 44 set up. The King is very similar but has a deeper lower cup insertion requirement, 9.5mm.
    Has anyone know what is the lower ream depth on the 2011 Sultans.

    Thanks for the help

    I do believe this is Tidy's area of expertise.

    Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not just surrounded by a*holes

    I apologise for missing this.

    To the OP, I find that the correct insertion depth has been achieved when, following withdrawal, the insertee tips her head back and opens her mouth and a pool of light appears on the floor between her legs. This is what usually happens for me anyway.

    I hope this helps.

    Are you sure you are inserting in the right place? Just because it fits doesn't mean it's meant to be there, you know.
