Have any of you swapped out an integrated headset for an external headset? I'm toying with the idea because I clearly have too much time on my hands.

Do you have some kind of adapter cup that allows you to fit a 1 1/8" headset into an integrated frame?

No adapter cup. One of the great folks at Chris King warned me that the headtube may be contoured larger than the 34 mm needed for a standard external cup headset. I haven't gotten around to measuring the internal diameter and didn't think to do it when I built the bike up last month.
I should probably just let this idea go...

What is the frame? Just curious. :D I like seeing what other people are playing with.

I'm the same way.
It's a 2010 S-works Langster. I should post pix---the build came out nice.

I love those. I contemplated one. I think I may end up with a 2011 Felt Footprint. I just love the name.
