This little beauty turned up in the post during the week. It gives Chris King a good run for its money in terms of quality. It features very nice machining and is very lightweight. I like the design as it seems very well thought out, even coming with a special fitting tool to protect the bearings from a press.
With a super low stack height it will give just over an extra 10mm of steerer height on the bike this is going to be fitted on to – saving the need to buy a new steerer assembly. I think that it’ll also
slacken increase the head tube by just enough too.

Is the warranty good on those ;0)
Won’t it steepen the head angle due to the low stack height?
Yeah, you’re right. It’s the effect I want to achieve, just confused myself trying to put it in writing :-s
Warranty from the Crank Bros importer is outstanding in my experience…
Indeed I just don’t want to have to use it so much ;0)
That saying I’ll be buying a Joplin when the 27.2 version appears.
