Hello,

Just wonder if I can use the lower cup of this headset up (external cup) and the upper one down, cause I’ve fitted this to my 2011 DHR and seems that slackened even more the headangle. . .
Any suggestions will be appreciated. . .

You have one of these right? Take a look at that recessed bearing contact in the upper cup. Do you think the lower race will not contact the cup's edge? :skep:

Edit: what you may be able to do is get a lower cup/bearing for the Inset 4 and replace your ext lower cup... Or, if you're using the 888, get a flat lower crown from Risse Racing. I believe this will get you 3/4 to a full inch of A2C knocked off.

What I’ll probably do is buy a new lower cup/bearing for the Inset 4 then, cause I’m using Boxxers.
The fact is that I didn’t expected the headangle to change that much, cause DHR was designed (I think) with an external lower cup while using the Fox 40s.

Thanks anyway...

Have you thought about Cane Crik's Adjust-o-set?

Yeah, but the thing is that I’ve just bought the Chris King one, so it’s a same to spend a whole load of money for the Cane Creek adj. o set.
Yeah, that does suck.
Say, your Inset 5 wouldn't happen to be red would it...in case you feel like selling :D
