Do the headset cups press directly into an all-carbon head tube or is there an aluminum or ti sleeve inside the head tube? Also, has anyone seen issues of corrosion at the headset / head tube interface on a C50?

There is an aluminum sleeve which the headset cups press into. I've always used a copper based anti seize compound when pressing the cups in. Never seen an issue with corrosion.
