    ُSwapping Head sets from Glory DH to Session 88 FR

    i want to put the head set which is on a Glory DH 06 that i think is a FSA pig DH on a Session 88 FR 09 frame.....

    Those the pig match the inner bore of the 88's head tube...??

    the diameters are ok but im not concerned on the depth in the bottom cup.....its a bout two CM deep in the Glory's head tube....would it ft in the 88 FR ?

    Headset

    The headset on the giant is a 1.125 and the headset on the session is a zero stack tapered 1.125 to 1.5 Cane Creek. So the answer is no, it will not work.

    Can you explane it a little more ? You mean the inner bore on 88's head tube limits the bottom cup to enter ?

    What I am trying to explain is that I believe that the Giant has an 1 1/8 inch headtube diameter. So the Trek which has a tapered headtube (1 1/8 upper, 1 1/2 lower) will not work, they are different sizes. hope that helps.

    I'm sorry Saber, the Giant does have a tapered headset.

    I know the 07+ used a 1.5 lower cup, but I'm not sure about the 06, I'm pretty sure giant used their own integrated headset though - I'm pretty sure they're not cross compatible, but you could go ahead and give it a shot.

    i have already told that i have no problem with the diameters i can recognize a 1.1/8" from a 1.5 ".....
    The issue is the stack also the 88 is a bit too far to give it a try its 400 KM away from me right now..
