Hello,
I am trying to figure out what headset to purchase for this frame. I ordered the frame and have a fox f29 100 fork for it. I have been reading that the fox forks hit the downtube on some bikes, mainly 29ers, when you use a shorter stack headset. Anyways what i am getting at is if anyone has a newer inbred with a fox fork on it and with what headset they are using. I can not afford a chris king so that one will not help. Any suggestion would be great as well. Thank you.

Cane Creek S-3 plus 5 might work.

Maybe the FSA Pig Pro DH, it has a bottom stack by about 5mm. I have one on my Voodoo Canzo from when I was installing a WB Magic fork with a shorter A-C than the Reba that the bike was build around.

The fox F29 hits the downtube on my ti inbred 16" size, even with the smoothie regular headset (bottom stack height is a thick 15.1mm). You'll definitely need a S3 +5 or a chris king with a +5 bottom race. Or try not to crash on your left side.
