hm, I guess that would work if I had a 1 1/8 headset. I already have a tapered headset though. is there anything else or do I have to get a new headset?

This should work for you. Cane Creek makes one too.

another disadvantage for "problem solver" shim is that it will add almost 1sm HT height :(

thanks guys. does that fsa just slide onto the fork steerer? the one review for it on jenson said to make sure it supports the headset I will be using but I looked for it on the fsa website to find out what headsets are supported but I couldn't even find the product.

You just need to be sure that you're bearing diameter is the same as the FSA headset. Not much info on the jenson page.

What headset are you using? Try calling FSA for their input.

http://www.competitivecyclist.com/za/CCY?PAGE=BUY_PRODUCT_STANDARD&PRODUCT.ID=8947&MODE=

the 40-series one works as well. for my headset thats coming with the china 29er frame, it needs to be the 52/30 size. competitive doesn't list the size but its suppose to be the 52/30, I ordered mine from bikerbob. other sites will usually list the size. theres 3 or 4 different sizes. let me know if you have more questions.

For $10 I would definitely get the 110 version with the better seals.

The 110 is also listed as Alloy so it is probably a bit lighter than the steel 40 version.

the 110 is 39g, the 40 is 14g, according to competitive, says actual weight.
