Somehow I don't think it's the correct bearing for this fork. It won't go further down even with torqued down headset.
The bearing should sit almost on the flat surface, no?
It leaves an unsightly gap when installed into the frame.
I do not know bearings. I measured this 37mm inside, 49mm outside, 7mm tall.
Are there different types with these main dimensions? I don't know anything about the angles.
I am hoping to somebody knowledgeable can help me with finding a solution?
As an alternative solution can sanding/grinding down the carbon bearing race a bit work?
I'll try to find a tapered fork in a bike shop somewhere to check where the bearing sits on that, but 1 3/8 is not too common size.
In general it's the right size. Outside diameter is perfect, and I didn't find any bearing with different inside diameter with the same outside diameter.
It fits the fork much better! (animated)
But now the gap between the frame and the fork disappeared totally, if I torque down the headset, the fork won' turn.
I measured the new bearing to be 49/37/6.5, so its height is 0.5mm lower.
The new one marked to be 1-3/8" ACB 36 x 45
So I'd need either a 49x37x7 36/45, or a 49x37x6.5 45/45. Neither of them exist it seems!
