    It will not work.
    Maverick frame is designed or the Campy 45* headset where the bearings rest onto the frame.
    King headsets have cups that press into the frame.

    I have been using the same FSA Orbit Carbon since 2004 and it has outlasted many King headsets.

    King does not have a compression ring for the upper bearing for support. FSA & Cane Creek do which allows less adjustment and wear.

    Umm, Correction good news from King for longer forks

    The FSA get my vote too. 5000+ miles on mine, a couple of re-grease with waterproof grease and they work like a charm.

    Cane Creek Angle Set: Nope as it's a press fit.

    Cane Creek calls the Campy spec, (Campagnolo Hiddenset frames with 41.8mm headtube ID (stainless steel 45x45 degree angular contact cartridge bearings) "Italian Integrated (ISi) Threadless" so there is "something": http://www.canecreek.com/component-h...product=IS-3-i
