    I’m in the process of building up a new frame, however my steerer tube is about 5-10mm too short. I’ve currently got an FSA Pig, but was thinking that if I swap the headset to one with at lower stack height I can I get the extra 5-10mm needed?

    Am I right? If so please recommend a suitable headset (that wont totally empty my bank account). Thanks.

    The crank Bros website, states that the headsets have a stack height of just under 21mm, does anyone know of any lower?

    AFAIK the CB one is the lowest standard 1 1/8th headset. You’ll have to start considering replacing the stem if you need lower

    Not sure what the stack height is but my Cane Creek double XC 2 flush is well, flush. Its for a 1.5 headtube though?

    Its currently FS at £35 posted – been in the classifieds this week…. let me know if you want it….

    Avoid Crank Bros unless you like a rusty headset / bearing when they see moisture.
