Hi All,

Need a low stack headset for threadless forks I've bought that are perhaps a little short.

Anyone know of a headset around 23mm stack height and/or a stem with a low clamp?

Cheers,
Rob.

My cyclo-cross bike has a 1" Cane Creek S2 (I think that's the model, anyhow) which isn't quite so low as this Star offering but probably a bit easier on the wallet - retailing between about 20 and 25 quid. Still allows me to fit an ITM Eclypse aheadstem, 10mm high spacing ring and canti brake adjuster/hanger without needing to have bags of steerer tube on show.
