This doesn't have the conversion kit to fit a 1 1/8 crown does it?

this headset converts 1.5 headtube to accept a 1 1/8 ahead fork. all it needs is a £4 crown race

So this reduces a straight 1.5 head tube (top to bottom) to 1 1/8, as opposed to a tapered head tube (1 1/8 top, 1.5 bottom)?

I just want to be absolutely clear because I have a tapered headset, but a 1 1/8 steerer on the fork.

.


yes, both cups fit 1.5 straight headtube, then convert down to 1 1/8 top & bottom.

Thanks for the clarification, not quite what I'm looking for...although I suppose I could use just the bottom half...but that would work out a little expensive. :wink:
