Cane Creek own Dia-Comp. Every threadless headset has to get rights($$$$) from Cane Creek to produce and/or sell a headset in North America, even King. So EVERYBODY has to pay for rights to Cane Creek.
And that's Hope's issue. I'm not sure if they don't wanna pay the costs or if they just think it's BS, but the Hope UK, US and Canada guys said they were having issues with Cane Creek and they're "not gonna even bother bringing the Headset to the North Amercian Continent. It's a shame too..." LOL, each of them said the same thing. I thought maybe it was just the US, but Hope Canada can't get it either. They said the only thing I could do to get it was order it from a LBS in the UK....LOL, that's what I did. It's a shame I couldn't use it on my Megamo.
