    Headset for Intense Carbine

    Hi there,

    I am about to place an order for an Intense Carbine. I live in Thailand and headset choice is quite limited. I would have to order one from the US. Can anyone recommend what to get? I am quite confused when I check out the online shops.

    Thanks

    Cane Creek 40 is my go to. The 110 isn't appreciably worth it IMHO.

    I run the Cane Creek 40-Series on my personal bikes and have never had any issues. Go for the ZS44/EC49 setup

    Or you can run a Hope. I have it on my Carbine, reliable and well priced.

    Spendy, but I'm a Chris King guy. I've never had an issue and moved them from bike to bike and and had them last decades. Plus, you can buy new parts as needed if you move from tapered to straight etc.

    You can check here
    Wiggle | Hope Pick And Mix Headsets | Headsets

    It shows you all the various sizes. For the carbine upper you want #2 integral zs44
    For the lower you want #F Ec49.
