    Cane Creek IS2 vs IS3

    New Ibis family member here, and first post on mtbr. Excited about my new Mojo Carbon, built around 2009 slx package. Got a 2008 frame that came with IS2 headset though.

    What should I do:

    1. Use IS2 until it wears out.

    2. Be a hardass and insist that bike shop switch to IS3 (which they are willing to do, no problem), and use it until it wears out.

    3. Upgrade to IS110 now and be done with it.

    Thanks in advance for your opinions. Can't wait to ride the heck out of my new bike!

    How much $ for the shop to upgrade to a 110? looks like dry riding for you?

    Go with the 110 and be done with it. I had an IS3 then a SOLOS. Finally, about a year ago I went with the 110 and it is superior in every way. Do it and be done. Just my 2 cents.

    if you are thinking now about upgrading in the future to the 110, why go with the IS3? get the better headset (which will also last longer) and get it out of the way...

    Congratulations and welcome to the big HAPPY family. I had a similar dilemma and went with the 110. Fit and forget with no regrets.

    Thanks for your thoughts guys.

    Yes, it's mostly dry riding here in SoCal, so headsets should last a bit longer here than other places.

    LBS is asking $68.50, the standard Ibis parts pick price. These are normally >$100 aftermarket, right? So it's worthwhile to get it done now.
