The 2010s are sure to go down as a bit of a strange spell also... 500 different wheel sizes, 30 different hub widths to choose from and so many different headtubes that manufacturers just went "You know what... here's all the possible parts. Just grab the ones that you need..."

That headset could still be in use... Nice to see some things can outlast their "standards".

Only with 2-3 replacement caps and eventually a conical wedge upgrade.

Surely King anodising doesn't fade? Why would you need a new cap?

Were they so determined to avoid the term 'collet' they used a description of the shape instead?

Yeah, I knew about the patent bizzo, just the name of the collet is weird.
It's the name for a conical wedge isn't it? Not something come up with by Cane Creek?

Good idea, steel frames can fit anything. A friend has a 135mm alfine in a track frame :D

Just needed some coaxing...
