I am replacing my Planet X Pro Carbon frame with a Planet X Maratona frame and I'd like to make sure I have everything in place before I collect the new frame.

The Pro Carbon is straight 1 1/8" headtube and I have an FSA Orbit C headset

The Maratona headtube is tapered Internal 1 1/8" - 1.5" and the description says that the Maratona fork comes with an integrated lower crown race.

So does this mean that all I have to buy is the correct lower 1.5" bearing?

I am struggling to determine what the lower bearing should be.
There seem to be 3 options - straight, 45 dog or 36 deg

    Ring up PX to make sure.
    Freedom of Information seems to be a bit of a hangup with PX and the fact you have to buy things as add-ons such as headsets.

    Yes, only a lower bearing needed
    FFS! Harden up and grow a pair :D
