Right brains,
I think I know what I need, but i'd be grateful for confirmation.

My new frame arrived today slightly different to what I was expecting but the better for it. It didn't have a BB30 but a normal 68mm shell. It does however have a 44mm headtube which I'm told is zero stack on top and external bottom. I'd like to use my 1 1/8" fork with it.

Looking at the pick and mix Hope set up I've identified a '2' top and a 'H' bottom, looking at the link below:

http://www.merlincycles.co.uk/Bike+Shop/MTB++Parts/MTB+Accessories/Headsets/Hope+Pick+N+Mix+Headset+Cups_HSC.htm

Am I barking up the right tree? I'm really not too confident. Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

Rich

I have no idea on this.
This would make it a semi-integrated tapered headtube right?

H is 1.5 headube though, i think you would need D for the bottom? (so long as the 44mm thing doesnt apply to the bottom?)

The 44mm Headtube is designed to take any type of steerer with the correct headset.
If you are using a 1 1/8th steerer you will need one like this.

As for Hope, give them a call as they will point you in the right direction :wink:

Great. Thanks for the advice. Hope have sorted me out via my local bike shop. Didn't think I was going to have time to get in this week as I've got a lot of work on - but I made some. Got to get your priorities right...

The frame is a new Spooky Darkside 650b.
