    Low-stack Height Headset - S.I.R.9

    I'm looking for the lowest stack height headset that works with a S.I.R.9. Does anyone have any knowledge on this? The FSA, Cane Creek, etc. all have so many options, it starts to get confusing very fast.

    Crank Brothers is going to be the lowest.

    Ritchey has the WCS Carbon press-fit that claims a 18mm stack height, and the Superlogic Zero which claims 12.1mm stack. Are either of these for integrated? Does not say on Ritchey's website.

    Pretty sure both of those are Zero-stack models and require a 44mm ID headtube. Your SIR9 has a standard 1.125" headtube and needs a headset with external cups. Of those, the Cranks Bros headsets are the lowest stack.

    You don't need an integrated HS, the SIR9 takes a normal pressed fit HS.

    I think Nater is right, the crank bros is going to be the shortest stack height, I think it saves 10-12mm over a king or CC.

    But be careful - if you use a Crank Bros headset you might have issues with the adjuster knobs on top of your fork hitting the frame if the wheel is turned all the way.
