Yeah, the headset I replaced was deep, this one is short. No problem yet and my frame is 3 years old, about 6 months with this lower cup. I have never ovalized a head tube before so I wasn't too worried about it.Any thoughts or experience with this headset over time? Have it now and am a bit weary of how short the pressed portion (not sure what to call this) of the cup is. About half as deep as the Cane Creek. Is the shorter length begging for ovalization or do you think the frame can handle it?
