hey guys!

please help: my new built on Flash frame + 1 1\8 SID fork is almost ready, but missing one last small but critical part - headset. Actually i have the original headset for Lefty fork, but obviously it doesn't work. i've bought 1.5 - 1.1\8 reducer for lower crown but it doesn't fork for C'dal headset. it's simply different. Also i've bought the "problem solver" = shim for upper crown to install conventional headset, but it's 75g! :doh:

can you advise WW solution to install the old school fork on C'dale? practival advice is very appreciated!

thanks!
Sandal

ok than guys.... the WW solution was found with a local turner. He has made two custom racers for me + i used a conventional expansion shim on the top against stearing tube. All together turned to be 30g. Not bad ;)

Hello, I actually hopped into the internet trying to find the same exact solution. I just got a Flash carbon ultimate 26'' frame without headset, and I have a DT swiss XRC100 standard straight 1/8 tube waiting for a frame for the past several month! I'm so exited to star the fun!

So I need to find now a headset, also trying to find were to buy and what brands are out there making those.....and of course.....light!

Any tips?
