Cane Creek sought to find a headset solution that will allow use of a tapered steerer fork in a standard ZeroStack. A humble custom frame builder from Portland, Oregon named Sean Chaney, approached Cane Creek with a simple yet brilliant headset idea.

Chaney came to David Turner, owner of Turner Bicycles with his idea. He asked advice as to who would be interested to become partners with him and work his idea from paper to something tangible.
