    Sortie headset size?????

    Hey guys/gals,

    I just bought a 2013 sortie comp and was interested in ordering a cane creek angleset on it but I need to verify the headset size. I do not have the bike yet, so I can not just go out and measure! Cane creek lists the size as ZS44 / ZS56/30. Can anyone verify that for me? Anyone here rocking an angleset on their sortie?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    I know its too late ( 1 year late ) for this reply and like you, iv'e been researching like crazy to find an angleset that can fit that narrow head tube and slacken the steep HA. The Headset size that will fit the bike is ec44 - zs44. Make sure you measure your headtube length because the information in the Diamondback website is incorrect. I ordered a works components headset 110 mm head tube length 1.5 degrees. My lbs installed the angleset with no problems and the HA is 68 degrees. I dont really feel any difference except that when i go down, i feel faster and secure in the corners
