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



I think i got it from a shop on Fleabay but it was quite a while ago, cost me about £23 but that was better than half price :wink:

CRC used to sell them.

**EDIT** they still do for £18.99 :)

I wouldn't base my opinion on a couple of reviews.

There is a stainless version, the Cobalt SL. I have one sitting here that has been over winter and still looks brand new.

Anyhoo, it is not exactly what you should be fitting to a downhill rig.

i went hunting in my headsets box found a lower race thats only 10mm high. basic but tough.
then found a steel cup cane creek top half thats only 11mm high.
i think 21mm is about as low as im gona get.

was like this.

now this.

went from a 100mm travel standard fork.
to a lower stack hight headset and a 100mm fork with almost no crown hight.
so its helped a good bit towards the head angle.
