FSA Orbit X fir problems on Rush?
I got an FSA X Orbit 1" headset for $20 from Chucksbikes. seemed like a great deal, but it showed up in a pink plastic baggie rather than retail packaging. No biggie. Here's the rub. I take it down to my LBS to have it installed in the frame, and the mechanic there says the crown race is the wrong size.
He was being kinda vague. He didn't seem sure wether the race was the wrong size for the fork, or the headest, or both. He was going to call FSA and get some help figuring it out, but I'm wondering what's wrong, and wether I ordered the wrong thing or wether Chucksbikes sent me the wrong thing or what.
The headset is advertised as a 1" headest with 27.0 race. The fork is a stock Rush fork.
Any help in understanding what might be worong, and what I should do about it would be much appreciated
