Well from the Cane Creek website:

ZS44/28.6/H8/K
Top Head Tube Inside Dia. 44.00mm
Stem Clamp Dia. 28.6mm

EC49/40/H12/K
Bottom Head Tube Inside Dia. 49.61mm
Crown Race Seat Dia. 39.79mm

....... which all seems to tally with the dimensions.


I believe this FSA would also suit, and can be bought as one item:

That's 50id/55od - click through to the datasheet for more specific dims.

As a final option, a Hope 2 top, and Hope F bottom would give you the same combo ........

Erm ..... JE James or Evans look like they've got them. As they're quite expensive bought separately, I'd probably pay a few quid extra for the Hope pick 'n' mix.

Yep :D. Like I said in my other post, just £8 extra will get you the Hope combo.

No problem - like I said, I've been racking my brains with a similar problem :oops:.

Here's what appears to be the right FSA if you want to save a few quid. The exact spec is a little bit hit and miss depending on which website you look at, but this one matches the one I linked before:

Look forward to seeing the build thread :wink:.
