I got a sweet deal today I got a S8 headset for 26$ brand new
it didn't come with a crown race so I used the existing one from a cane creek az1 (lame headset the bike came with) so I got it all installed but the steering seems a little tight and the bottom bearing cop does not cover the race. I didn't tighten the star nut that tight so I don't think its over tightened or binding .. Do these headset's need there own crown race.. or is there a break in period like the cane creek web page suggest?

Thanks for your help..

The S-8 uses the same race as the S-1, 2, 3, 6, 8 and IS 2, 6 headsets
so is there suppose to be a gap.. or is the race suppose to be covered by the bottom cup?
