    2008 Komodo I Headset

    Can anyone tell me what headset they're using on either their Komodo, or any other Jamis bike that has the same head tube. I've been pulling my hair out searching this forum, eBay and the internet...not to mention calling Jamis Bicycles directly. They gave me a part number "ZS56. SIS-28.6" This is all french to me. I don't have a headset on it, cause I bought it with the frame only. Thanks!

    Depends on what fork steer tube size you need. If you run a 1 1/8 reduction headset for both top and bottom. If like me you use a tapered fork then a Cane Creek 40 ZS ConversionTop 1 1/8 Threadless 49mm will solve the top portion, then a standard 1.5 headset for bottom.

    Basically the 1.5 head tube allows flexibility for fork installs. Cane creek has a nice tool online to help in your decision. Here is link:

    40-Series

    You want the 40 ZS 56 Bottom and 40 ZS 49 top. Assuming your running tapered. If not running tapered then 40 ZS 49 Bottom - for a straight 1 1/8 tube… make sense.

    49 = correlates to the internal dimension of (ID) inner channel which steer tube can pass through - or 49.61mm ID

    56 = 55.95mm (rounded)

    ZS = zero stack - which means keeps your rise of bars/stem etc lower…

    Hope this helps.
