King on most bikes... I like the fact that I can devolve certain components and their overall compatibility (convert from threaded to threadless... run a 1 inch steerer in a 1 1/8" headset). I run one frame with the abovementioned.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Better than King IMO. no wrenches needed to adjust, just tighten by hand and lock down the 3 bolts with a 2.5mm allen key..done. Also has grease injection ports for relubing. I have had mine since 96 and it has never come loose ever.

So did you do anything to take up space between top cap and steer tube- an o-ring like King does, perhaps? Or did you machine it close enough that there was no appreciable slop between the two?

I've done similar myself and been satisfied with the results, but always looking for a better way....
