    Got my frame fork and rims today.

    All looking lovely but the finish on the headtube is iffy.

    It looks like its been shaped to receive bearings but not the cups. Is this correct?

    I bought a King inset headset but it wont fit. I have an old Hope headset which I can pop the bearings out of and they fit just about but are a mm or so proud when in the recess.

    Is it a one off problem or a known issue or am I just being a numpty?

    Cheers!

    I think you need one of those integrated type headsets, like the FSA one that you put in the Kinesis FF29. I’ve just got an IP 057 from China and ordered one with it, only got it today so haven’t tried it yet but I understand you just push the bearings in and tension it all up with the normal stem bolt. Hope that makes sense, I think Bliss Bikes do those headsets, not sure if your Hope bearings will be the right size though as the right ones have a bevel on to get a tight fit.
