Hmmm I’m stuck.

the fork neck tube flares out to to 27.06m at the very bottom (25.4 for the rest of the neck)

The crown race I have is 26.12 mm

Here is the gap to be pressed:

I can’t get this to seat down at all. I’m applying a good amount of force I think! The crown race has to stretch almost a whole millimeter? (.94mm)

do these measurements sound right?

Just found the specs of a Cane Creek 40. It's for forks with a 26.4mm seat.
Your fork is made for 27mm JIS crown races. It won't press on, stop.

Ok then. Back to the drawing board. Here is what I was sent about the headset

the product code ec30/25.4 ec30/26 should have tipped me off if I knew about it. If I follow cane creeks code system I need a ec30/27 lower cup and bearing.


wow I’m learning soooo much. Thanks for all the help Hammpea!! I will reach out to cane creek 🤞🏾 If they don’t make it I might have to go hunt for another headset (will be the 4th purchased for this project 😂 accidentally bought a 1 inch thread less headset made for integrated headsets DOH!)

Also found another discussion from someone in a similar situation as me:

Ok, I read your edit, you know the correct lower sizing to ask for.

Are you also sure the 1-1/8'' cup adapter is 1'' EC30? Should be listed with the model, double check that as well.
