    Default Head tube diameters for 1 1/8''-1 1/4'' tapered fork

    What are the choices for head tube diameters for 1 1/8''-1 1/4'' tapered fork? Only 44mm?

    Is it better to use a smaller diameter head tube on an all-road disc bike for a light rider (140 lbs)?

    Don't have the answer on what is better, but Steve used a 38mm/D-11 sized HT on my Hampsten ti GP, and was able to source a rare-as-hen's-egg Chris King D-11 lower to fit a 1.125-1.25 tapered fork. I liked both the aesthetic and ride a lot. I don't know if any headsets are available with that spec today.

    for non-integrated? You can use 44mm or you can use the Dario D11 thing with a special King lower. If you go integrated there are many more options.
    bamboo, aluminum, wood.
