CANE CREEK BOTTOM HEADSET ASSEMBLIE - (FOR TAPERED HEADTUBES / STEERERS)
A "Tapered" headset is generally any headset configuration in which the bottom bearing or assembly is larger than the top bearing or assembly. In a tapered configuration the top and bottom head-tube standards are typically independent and it is critical to identify each. For example, a Cane Creek standard IS 1-1/8" top head-tube assembly may be paired with a 1.5" traditional cupped bottom head-tube assembly.
Conversion parts and assemblies allow straight 1-1/8" forks to be used with tapered head-tubes. Conversion assemblies also allow straight 1.5" head-tubes to be used with tapered or straight 1-1/8" forks. Due to the great number of combinations, many headsets are offered as separate top and bottom assemblies for maximum flexibility.
This can be used to replace the FOCUS C.I.S. (Cockpit Integrated Solution) stem system (with the integrated cables).
The C.I.S system is used on some Focus Thron², Jam² an Sam² models.
If you wish to replace the C.I.S system with a classic stem, you will need this headset top assembly, a standard stem and some stem spacers.
Please note: this is the headset top assembly only!
