Mojo ti ade me some evolution with his magic tools : first cleaning and adjusting the titanium steerer and legs from a manitou fork I have bought to Trip this summer, and put them on a manitou 0 I have bought to Scant.

Mojo made me a little aluminum part for my Bullseye spindle. It needed only 6mm for tightening the crankset and this little part is only for security.

Agreed. Putting the modern CK SV on there is a misstep.

I agree, so, if someone want to swap it for a no logo :roll: :D

On other hand, All the bearings are modern (original bullseye bearings are too brittle) and this CK headset is the better alternative I have found and the logos are unobtrusive. Another alternative would be an original XT headset. But, if Tomac used a 1" XT, Furtado keeped the campagnolo 1"1/4 headset.
Another solution is to respray the CK for hiding the logo. :?

But this stem, with a cable hanger is not really necessary with the Manitou 1 :mrgreen:

just do it yourself :lol: ...is very simple, but then you've got a silver CK and it must be anodized in black.
But to be honest a XT headset would fit better.

yes that's right, but this stem just belongs to such a Yeti (so to say, it's as an ingredient :roll:)

...what bothers me, it's just too deep.
