Alot of eastern frames need a special bearing. I know Cane Creek makes a bearing that fits them. I forget what its called but its not campy spec.

I have no idea what frame that is just by looking at it since Eastern made so many different stock frames with that cutout & overall look

That's a great way to fuck up your frame. Just spend the money to get a headset, overtime the headtube is going to ovalize very quick & your headset will never be tight and it will wobble all the time.

I'm not your mother though, but $20-$30 now, or $300-$400 in a few weeks

This. Dont be an idiot. If things don't fit together, its obviously not meant to work together.

I rode my headset loose forever and it ovalized my forks steering tube. Just wait man. You don't want to risk a 30$ headset being replaced then 150$ forks AND the headset too.

I had that happen with Shadow bearings once. It sucked ass. Traded them for regular, more generic bearings.
