I'm going to need abit of help with a new project build I have on the go , used to do a nice bit of biking as a teen but mostly norco and specialized and this frames got me asking a few questions before I go ahead and start ordering parts any and all help would be appricated .

Head set /head tube- just on inspection I notice the head tube is mightily bigger and is almost like a bearing race on it's own , would I need to get a headset to go inside or just bearings and a race and good to go ? Would a 1-1\8th cane creek zero stack fit or what kind if a set up am I looking at ?

Suspention - with said headtube would I be alright purchasing argyles off the bat ? Should u have any worrys with the forks steertuve or would I require a reducer ?

Geometry - should i worry about frame geo to much ? I am looking at running a 24 in the rear 26 in the front and suspention in looking at 100 mm or 120 mm forks for sure , I dont know if parts got better with the times but I seen a few people loose there frace via frame snappage /part failure....

Building this frame from the ground up and located in Canada so any set up suggestions and any help is more then greatly appriciated

It depends if the fork tube is tapered or not, not too familiar with argyles but for my fox floaters I needed to purchase the headset adapter.
