    Custom Bike, fork options, unfamiliar head?

    Hi everyone, I hope this is the correct venue.
    I'm thinking about a new fork and I am wondering what options I have for this head. there is a long story to this... But the question is,
    what size head is this, It's much larger than a 1-1/8, is this a 44mm that the internet is talking about?

    Take it to a shop and have it measured with a set of calipers. It looks like you have an zero stack headset so it could be a 44mm, 49mm, 56mm, etc. No way to tell from a picture. You may be able to tell what it is based on the markings on your current headset. It looks like a cane creek HS, should be listed as ZS44, ZS49, etc.

    See this page for all of the options:
    Park Tool Co. » ParkTool Blog » Headset Standards

    But you really should take it to a shop if still unsure.

    Thanks for the info, I'll look closer at the headset, what you see is what I have though, so the top (dust cover?) is missing.
