    Headset for xc 204?

    Just ordered a frame and I'm new to the whole zero stack thing. Will any zero stack work?

    All Zero Stack headsets conform to a standard. I believe Wheelworld had one that would work, but for the price, the one at the link below is hard to beat. It's an OEM version of an FSA ZS and may have a few marks, but is new:

    Yes, as long as it's Zero Stack.

    I have the Cane Creek ZS-3 in mine, very nice and smooth with zero play. I put a S-3 in my wife's, just as nice.

    I use a Ritchey I got from ProBike on sale. Overseas shipping is quick too.

    I'm using a zs3. One nice thing about the Cane Creek stuff is that a lot of their stuff uses common parts, like bearings and crown races. I've got S-3 on two other bikes (the wife's and my old HT), and a ZS-3 on my XC-204, so I can swap forks around and only cary one set of headset bearing spares. You can check to see if stuffs compatible by comparing the part numbers in the spare parts list that comes with the headset, or checking the spare parts lists online.

    Keep in mind that integrated stack headsets are different than zero stack headsets. Different inner diameter headtube if I remember.

    Hey guys--
    So you HAVE to use a zero stack headset? Hmm...

    Can you still use spacers so you can set the bar up higher? I guess I screwed up; I ordered a standard headset... Argg..

    Also, standard size fork?

    That is what I used. Bought a Ritchey from ProBike. You can use spacers. The bike uses a 1 1/8" fork tube diameter.
