    Chris King has the Perdido (integrated headset). http://www.chrisking.com/headsets/hds_perdido.html . You might want to call your local bike store to make sure it fits. "Perdido Headsets require a deeper and larger diameter bore than the Zero-Stack headset. This increase in bore depth may damage or weaken some frames. Not all Zero-Stack frames can be converted to Perdido"

    Giant Internal Headset?

    From what I've been told, almost all new Giants use what they call an integrated headset. This is, in reality, a Zero-stack headset. Given the differing tube diameters and bearing races, be extra careful what you end up putting in there. I know from my perusing, that Cane Creek makes a Zero-stack, and I think FSA makes or used to make one too. Good Luck!

    Giant also makes a reducer so one can fit a traditional 1 1/8 headset. Contact your local giant retailer for that.
