Picked up this very nice Canyon FK049 full carbon fork but slowly losing my mind trying to understand headset standards. It has an integrated crown race but I can’t work out what I need to make this work. Frame has a straight 44mm head tube, so grabbed a ZS44 Cane Creek which worked out... well, see the photo with the smaller bearing. The larger bearing is from a 1.5 inch headset lower (FSA Orbit ITA) and obviously doesn’t fit either...
So, what am I missing? Diameter of the crown race seems to be 1.5 inches at the base. Thanks in advance!
Some canyons use an IS44 top and IS48 bottom
