Thanks. The rider's viewpoint is easy to remember so I'll make the hub logo read top to bottom like the spine of a book, that makes it right for the NDS.

Looking for a headset. Tapered frame but want to use 1 1/8 steerer fork. Internal frame. But angle adjustable.

Is there such a thing? I understand I may want to much......

Probably cane creek is your only option

if your frame is 55.95 lower insertion fit - not 55.0 (yes there is 2 sizes of the internal tapered lower headtube for ATB), all you will need is a reducer crown race (which is easy to source)

Someone famous (O-BW) told me that the hub should be oriented so that when you're being photographed crossing the finish line (winning of course) the hub brand can be read correctly in the photograph. That is all.

Oh, and the rear hub logo should be aligned so that the guy on your wheel is oriented to read it. There's not usually much choice in this, though. :huh:

Well, I stand informed...

I'm on the fence as to whether I'll dissent or not.

This is all too much, I'm sending the wheel to the factory in Indonesia so they can work out which way round to insert the skewer. :lol:
