Installing Look fork
I recently bought a Look (555) frame from ebay which came with an HSC5-SL fork and integrated headset. I'm okay with the top of the head tube (it's like my Cannondale except the star nut is held in with a wedge type device); my question is between the bottom of the head tube and the fork.
There is a piece which fits in the bottom of the head tube (sort of a cup to accept the sealed bearing unit), and of course sealed bearing which seats in it. Fine. But the sealed bearing just sits directly on the fork? As I understand it, the type "L" forks have the 'fork cone' molded into the the CF. But it just looks odd to me - there is quite a gap.
Anyone have experience with these?
