after installing the fork (fox 36) I find out that both dials smack the down tube. I am using a cane creek double xc flush (fyi not a good idea) to keep the front end down.

Does anyone have any ideas on what my options are?
I have seen "tall" race's, but this is a 1.5 headtube....

Please help if you can.
Thanks.

i think they have an adaptor so that u could run a 1-1/8 headset on a 1.5 headtube. just can't remember... or am i imagining things again.

here's one option:

FSA ORBIT XTREME PRO- 1.5R

Forged and CNC machined 7075/T6 aluminum cups
21mm headtube insertion
Patented alignment tip for increased durability and performance
Industrial cartridge sealed bearings
Stainless steel crown race
Laser etched aluminum top cap
For use with 1 1/8" forks with 1.5" frames



option 2:

Headset Reducer

You can install a Cane Creek Double XC Short. The difference in height is approx. 10mm, which I think relates to roughly 1/2 degree decrease in headangle. My buddy has the Cane Creek on his, with the same fork, and he can x-up just fine .....plenty of clearance. Also a little added courage when the head angle isn't as steep. [email protected]

You can't ride it with that much turn lock.

How about gluing a small neoprene or harder rubber pad for a bumper on the bottom of the down tube?

Maybe look for some thick clear vinyl?

Raising the head tube with some kind of spacer will make it handle more DH rather than trail bike.

Is it the vanilla fork you are running or the TALAS? and also What size frame, I may have a solution.
