Hey all, I was checking out bikeradar.com, and they had a cool write-up on Peaty's World Cup bike. It's got a 1.5in headtube which has cups to steepen or slacken the angle by 1 degree. I thought this was pretty cool and was wondering if anyone knew a 1.5in to 1 1/8in headset for purchase that does that. Hoping it's not a proto since I'd defenitley like to put one on my Perp. Below is the link. Peaty's bike is MINT!

I run them on my DH bike. There are 2 companies making the cups, but then you need to add the internal headset.

Here's where to buy them.

I dont think there are ones for a tapered head tube, only a 1.5" headtube to fit a 1 1/8" steer tube since you are angling the steer tube and it wouldn't fit through the 1 1/8th end of the tapered headtube. If I misread it and you meant a 1.5 headtube to fit a 1 1/8th steerer then K9 industries also makes some.

From peoples measurements once its installed they say its closer to 1.5 degrees but still legit.
Still good for me. I sent them an e-mail to see if it will work on my Perp.
