im trying to tweek the head angle on one of my bikes and im looking for a lower headset cup
thats has as little hight as possible.

its for a standard 1 1/8 steerer and headtube.

the top half is not a problem as i have plenty of steerer tube.
i have modded the fork from 5" to 4" travel which has helped but could do with a bit more.

anyone know of a real low stack hight headset?

What do you have on there already? Crank Brothers do some pretty sleek ones.

I've got a Crank Brother Cobolt on my Kona U'hu, it has a 21mm stack height.
Here's a pic

Just looked at the instructions on my Cobolt C Directset & it says that the lower cup/bearing plus crown race is 10mm.

10 mm looks about as low as possible..
where did you get that from?
