Hi all!

There are a number of aftermarket headsets out there that allow adjustment of the head angle (works compnents, slackerizer, cane creek...). They all seem to be compatible with the zero stack headsets and external cup headsets, but I haven't been able to find an option for the integrated headset (IS).

I have a carbon frame where headset bearings sit directly into the frame (oh yeah, and there is a tapered steerer single crown fork installed). Upper diameter of the bearing shell is 42mm, lower diameter is 52mm. I understand that a 42mm hole on top leaves little (/no?) room to play with bearing offset and angle, but with 52 mm at the bottom, it should be doable to a certain extent. If the latter holds true, I'm wondering if the upper bearing could be moved outside the frame using a dedicated bearing cup/adapter, and the problem could be solved.

So, my question here is, whether anybody knows if such a thing already exists and where it can be bought.

I look forward to hear what you smart people have to saySmile !

Email Work's Components and ask them. I've had to ask about bits for my bikes and they've always been very helpful.
