    Big Unit and 1 1/8" steerer straight fork - what headset?

    I feel stupid for not being able to figure this out. I just got a '13 Big Unit frame and I want to move my 1 1/8" steerer fork over from my old Unit. What headset do I need? I've searched and looked through stuff and can't seem to figure it out.

    Kona says: the FSA Orbit 1.5 ZS is what we use. To run with a straight 1 1/8 fork get the NO.57-1, and if you ever get a tapered fork you only need to change the crown race, you can keep the cups and bearings.
