can i ask why your headset doesn't fit the fork properly? i have a similar frameset that came with these deep set in matte black hs cups and no other bearing will fit in the cups and its mated to a very unattractive, 1" fork with a steel steerer in 1-1/8 " head tube. when i removed the fork and put my 1-1/8 alpine track fork, the headset didnt line up and looked like yours does. i am wondering if maybe its a campy style or cane creek type bearing and what would happen if i remove those cups from the frame what the races look like under neath or what angle the bearings are? would you know anything about this? thanks so much. so little of these frames and no info out there.

The quality seems pretty solid. There stiff as hell and the hubs are real smooth. Haven't been riding them that much yet though.

I didn't. I simply put some cloth and tape over it. I've heard that it isn't such a critical spot on the frame.
