Hi, has anyone actually managed to get hold of one of these yet? If so, is it just the top inset part that's .005" bigger?
Tried to ask 'King' themselves but they've told me to get my frame first and then measure it to see if it needs the bigger one. If Ibis are saying to use the bigger one, that's what I'd rather use.
Anybody got any thoughts or experiences?

Cheers, DF. :confused:

A friedn of mine had an Ellesworth Enlightenment frame where the diameter of the bottom of the head tube was too big for the CK headset. He contacted CK who asked him to get the frame measured properly so they could sort something out.

I got the frmae measured for him on a CMM, he gave CK the mesurements and they sent out an oversize bottom race to suit his frame. They were very helpful.

IIRC the race CK sent out to my buddy was less than 0.001" oversize.
