    2010 Mission headset damage

    OK so UPS dropped off my new to me 2010 mission, and they had kindly crushed a corner of the bike box. At first I thought all was ok, but then realized the top headset bearing would not set into the top cup. That is when I realized the top cup was dented. Thankfully the head tube itself is OK. It's an FSA Gravity Pro SX headset, which I believe came stock from the factory. Can anyone steer me in the right direction to find a replacement top cup??2010 Mission headset damage-img_20131110_160238_223.jpg2010 Mission headset damage-img_20131108_173802_619.jpg2010 Mission headset damage-img_20131110_160543_226.jpg

    Ok, so no replies so far....
    FSA does not sell/have in stock just the top cup race.
    I have thought of two options for repair, order an entire new FSA headset, exact factory spec replacement.
    Or, I can pick up a Cane Creek 40 series top end locally, leave the stock lower as is, and just use the CC top set.
    I don't think it would cause any issue to have the mismatched top and bottom...
    Any opinions good or bad to these two options?

    I would probably replace the whole thing. Might not totally be necessary but its 3 years old so its probably time to replace the bearings anyway. That way when your done you know it will be 100%. If money is tight as long as the bottom bearing feels fine you won't have any issues using the cane creek 40.

    Yeah, I ended up ordering a whole new headset. Only reason I thought of using the CC top end was because I could get it local. But I'm still dealing with UPS so I can wait for the new FSA to be shipped.
