    Hey guys, I'm looking for a company that makes an external lower headset cup for 1.125" steerer. All I could find were Cane Creek 110 series headset for 160 bucks (which is kinda steep) and Reset Racing headset for not much less... Everything cheaper was EC44 for 1.5" (aka tapered) steerer. Any ideas folks?

    Yes. You need a crown race for the 1.125" steerer, not a bottom cup.
