      Cane creek is always great.

      Be careful when having LBS install when they place the clamp on the outer lip. It may bend warp it slgihtly.

      If you have a shorter head tube, the insertion collar may have to be cut down. Had to do this on a XS frame install. Otherwise, great product.

          Comments about Cane Creek 40 Series EC44/40 Bottom Cup:

          This headset worked on my older Pivot Mach 5 frame that is designed to use a Zero-Stack 1-1/8" fork. It allows the use of a tapered fork by replacing the lower headset with an external one that is large enough to fit a tapered fork. Raised the front of the bike about 3/8" which I hardly notice, works great for converting zero-stack frames to tapered forks. NOTE: you will need to use the top of a zero stack headset, or keep your old one, because this is only the lower part & headset race you pound onto the fork, it also has a seal.
