    I agree. Looks like it to me. Pretty darn nice-looking stop too, imho.

    It would pretty cool on a cyclocross bike, which is what it's meant for: http://www.ritcheylogic.com/dyn_category.php?k=307251
    The hanger doesn't come on the "road" headsets: http://www.ritcheylogic.com/dyn_category.php?k=98560

    But not on a cyclocross bike with cantilever brakes..

    Road bike? there are other headsets for those, from same companies.

    ok.. if the road version is coming with my frame.. then i'll be happy
    ah more worrying before the stuff is even shipped.
    not buying from a shop right? they would have taken care of those details..

    If they sold you a cyclocross-specific headset for a "road" bike, well... the headset's not the problem. The salesman is.
