    2009 Mission 2 Headset Help

    I bought a 2009 Mission 2 from a guy a few months back. I am now in the process of buying the parts to assemble the bike. I asked around on here about headset size and was told 1 1/8" steerer. So I ordere an FSA Pig to do the job for me. When I received the headset, I took it out of the box to check fitment and the headset seems WAY small for the headtube. It just kind of wobbles in the flared out area of the headtube. This may be a total newbie question, or I am overlooking the obvious (I hope), but can anyone shed some light on this subject for me? Thanks guys.

    A standard 1 1/8 headset like the FSA Pig will not fit the Mission. You need an 44mm ZS headset. Something like this should work.

    Universal Cycles -- Cane Creek 40 ZS44 ZeroStack Headset - Black

    Universal Cycles -- FSA Orbit ZS Integrated Headset

    BTW, Cane Creek's website has a useful database of headset standards for different frames. That's the first place I always look before I buy a headset, because there are too many different types to keep track of.
    Cane Creek Cycling Components :: Headset Fit Finder

    Based on that, the full spec for a '07-09 Mission is:
    SHIS:ZS44/28.6|ZS44/30 (1-1/8" Zero Stack ZS Standard)

    Man, I knew I should have done some more questioning before I bought my headset haha. The funny thing is, I was originally going to go with the FSA Orbit ZS. Thanks for your help man. I really appreciate it.
