    Whats a good headset for my MX1 ?

    The headset that came on my Prophet MX1 has been a dissapointment since day one, and I am finally ready to replace it. It has a very poor seal (skinny o-ring) and once it is gone (breaks) it lets dirt and water in.....in other words the stock headset is a creaky son of a gun.

    The stock one is an FSA ORBIT Z 1.5R and I am running a Fox 36.

    What would be a better replacement, and do I have to have the super low stack height of the stock design (I don't mind increasing head tube angle some)?

    thanks!

    BTW, have you read this: http://www.cannondale.com/asset/iu_f...echnote_en.pdf

    If you want to try it, just buy this lower cup AND new (perhaps better quality) bearing/bearings to replace those damaged ones to get it working again.
