Cane Creek reveals headtube angle tweaking headset

Cane Creek has finally revelaed the headtube angle tweaking headset to which it has previosuly hinted – the Angleset.

The patent-pending design of AngleSet is head-tube length independent and fits most popular head-tube standards. A self-aligning feature between the bearings and the steerer tube ensures a perfect fit and makes fork installation a snap.

The AngleSet offers riders a choice of +/- 0.5°, +/- 1.0°, +/- 1.5° offset from the bicycle’s stock head-tube geometry. Riders can also choose a 0° set-up to achieve the bike’s original head-tube angle.

“In a conversation with Santa Cruz Bicycles, they identified a need in the mountain bike market to give riders a simple way to adjust a head-tube angle,” says Josh Coaplen, Cane Creek director of R&D.

“Every other angle adjustment system on the market is dependent on head-tube length, or is bike specific, which is not user friendly and often incompatible with a given frame. Santa Cruz gave me a challenge and the resulting AngleSet fits a much wider range of bikes and is very easy to use.”

The AngleSet will be available this September in three popular downhill and free-ride bicycle headset configurations. Riders will have the option of purchasing a complete AngleSet system that includes all three offset options or with a single offset option for those riders who know exactly what they are looking for.

The AngleSet will also be available as a stock or upgrade option on a number of 2011 bicycle models from Intense, Pivot, Santa Cruz and other high-end manufacturers.
