    Hi all,

    I have a slightly ovalized headtube on my Burner. Turner suggested that I use a deep insert headset with some JP..., and then trade-in my frame X miles down the road. So, seeing as how my Turner will not be a long-term ride, I don't want to go the route of the Steelset. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    that's why we drink it here
    Chris King also makes oversized headset cups. That would be the best way to go. Or if you're really cheap you can do what I did and hammer your headset cup in with a sliver of a beer can wedged in the front to take up the slack.
