    King or Cane Creek For My YS Headset?

    I'm in the home stretch for my parts list for my YS build. A few more pieces to go. I'm looking at headsets now, and the 2 mentioned in the title are my choices. I have a King on my Niner Jet 9, so I'm a little partial. What model of these two should I be looking at that will match well with the YS using a tapered steer tube?

    I used the crane creek zs (zero stack) 40, for the top and the crane creek XX 1.5 bottom. I bought both pieces a la carte from pricepoint.com.

The bottom half of this kit, which I was able to find on JensonUSA, Cane Creek S3/XXII Tapered Headset > Components > Headsets and Spacers > Headsets | Jenson USA

    And you will not need the 1.5 star-nut, the top-half of a tapered steerer uses the 1 1/8" nut that is supplied with the top headset kit.

    Much thanks again riiz. I went ahead and purchased it from Jenson along with another item, and saved money in the process that I can use on something else.
