Hi
Just a quickie, can i replace my Impact headset on my 1991 Explosif with a Mavic 316?
Been looking on the net and I'm getting more and more confused, some say the Impact stack height is 33mm some say 34.5mm and I can't seem to find the stack height of the 316, is it a straight forward swop or am I opening a can of worms?

:?

Someone was looking to do the same on their Cinder Cone:

I would imagine the stack height of the 316 would be too high, asuming there's no spacers in there now.

[edit] Stack height of the Mavic is 38-44mm

Thanks for that, I may be better off looking for an XT or XTR then.

:D
