  • Which uses a FSA No 42 Headset which has the following bearing specs:

    Upper Bearing – MH-P08F (30.5 x 41.8 x 8 – 45/45) Has a small lip on inner chamfer, check drawing
    Lower Bearing – ACB518K (40 x 51.8 x 8 – 36/45)

    and a Chris King dropset 2 has the following bearing specs:

    42mm 45x45 upper bearing
    52mm 45x45 lower bearing
    Compatible with our baseplate and 45 degree integrated crown races

  • So, could I use the standard bearing I already have which is Lower Bearing – ACB518K (40 x 51.8 x 8 – 36/45) and then the rest of the CK headset for the upper bearing and Patented GripLock® retention system?

  • I'm endeavouring to find out.
