My closeout (2010) frame came with the headset. I believe that they are excluding them going forward (2011).
Anyone able to help me out with a little more insight into this? Jake at Project 321 said that in order to use the 1-1/8 adapter the lower crown race would have to be split so that the adapter could be slid through the lefty without trying to press it on slamming against the bearings/headset while on the bike. After adding the headset using the 1-1/2 lower crown race I can't get the lefty crowns over the head tube and dust cap. Adding the 1.5mm that is necessary to use the tapered adapter isn't really any option for me at this point without machining down the dust cap as it is already too tall without the added stack height from the adapter. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could give me a little more insight on what they did or maybe even a couple close up pictures so that I can see the clearance and figure out what I need to do to make this work.frontier2k1 said:Cool, thanks for the info....
For the folks that are running a lefty and the Project 321 adapter, I assume you guys are running the tapered adapter? I spoke with Jake at Project 321 today and he mentioned that using the tapered adapter adds another 1.5mm of stack height which may make it too large, he mentioned that there was a way to run a 1.125 adapter on the bike which made me curious as to which you guys are using. Any and all help is much appreciated!
