oddball fork question
I'm really kind of confused about the design of my Ritchey WCS Cross Carbon fork. The top of the crown is really, really wide, so wide that the headset (which I don't yet have, but will be King no threadset) will not mate neatly to the fork. In other words, it looks like a lot of extra fork where the fork and headset meet. If this makes no sense, maybe I can post a picture.
Does anyone know if there's a reason for this. It may bother me aesthetically but if it's a functional problem, that's worse....
