- headset for asr-5?
edit: scrap that.
Hope will sell all the bits you need and that’s what I would buy. If it has a tapered head tube they sell a crown race reducer so you use the 1.5″ crown race.
Otherwise Chris King or plenty of others from FSA, superstar etc.
You could use the Cane Creek headset finder tool to get the exact fitment references.Posted 5 years ago
Would this be the one I’d need if I went for superstar?Posted 5 years ago
these are the works ones that can be used to change the angles: http://www.workscomponents.co.uk/works-components—10-degree-ec34–ec49–tapered-steerer-tube-headset-eg-yeti-asr-191-p.asp
Or if you go Hope it looks like you need items (1) and (F) from here:
and one of these if you have a normal steerer: http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/mtb-parts/mtb-accessories/headsets-1/hope-hs136-15-1-1-8-reducer.htmlPosted 5 years ago

Andy – no it’s a standards tapered headtube?
normal tapered headsets have a 44mm top cup – eg look at the SS ones.
That picture above and the Works website suggest a conventional external bearing 1 1/8th steerer top cup (34mm) and an external bearing 1.5″ steerer bottom cup.
Never seen a headset available like that. They normally have 44mm low stack top cups with those bottom cups.Posted 5 years agobigjimSubscriber
I have Hope on mine, my LBS sorted the cups for me as the Yeti is a bit odd in the sizing department. Hope isn’t cheap but it is really well made and sealed compared to cheaper ones I’ve owned in the past.
I’ll see if I have a record of the cups in my email but it was a bit unusual.Posted 5 years agobigjimSubscriber
Hmm not got any note of it. Basically I used to have 1 /18th steerer and used one of the internal cups which spaces down to that size, then I got tapered forks and had to change to an externally type cup as the internal 1.5 cup doesn’t fit they yeti. I can’t remember the letter for the cups though.Posted 5 years ago
