1" Threaded HS with low stack height(3 posts)

1" Threaded HS with low stack heightTWD

I'm looking for a 1" Threaded headset with lower stack height.

I tried a Shimano 105 which has a stack height of 37.5 mm, but the steerer is too short by about the thickness of the lock nut (I'm guessing 5mm).

So, can anyone recommend a good headset with a stack height in the range of 33mm or less? I'm looking for good quality, but reasonably priced (definetly less than $50).

I'm not a big fan of Ritchey components, but this one is cheap and 33mm high, and if you know how to install a hs it doesn't really matter how durable it is...

I had a similar problem with my mountain bike. I installed a Ritchey Logic headset. It has a stack height of 33mm. So far it has held up well. It is only $15 at the Third Hand. If you don't mind spending a lot, the King headset should also fit.
