    Headset you use for a non tapered Fork Mach 5

    Hi! I am waiting for the arrival of my Mach 5 from the U.S. & want to prepare the components to be used on the frame. I have a FOX Talas 32 non-tapered fork that I used on my 2009 Titus FTM (which I just sold), I have no plans of changing the fork for the next 2 years. I was wondering what Headset you guys use/recommend in this case.. Pictures would be great! Thanks!

    Here's an example of the Chris King version. You want to order an "Inset" style, 1 1/8" headset. Both cups will be 44.0mm (it's the first configuration listed on the CK page). Be sure not to get a tapered version though.

    There are other options if you want to go with a different manufacturer. Ritchey and Cane Creek also make versions of the Inset.

    Chris King is nice but for the money you can't beat Cane Creek. Inset type.

    That looks like the right model headset. Waiting for a new bike is hard, we've all been there

    Yes, the 2010 Mach 5 is non tapered, and requires a Zero Stack headset or this Inset headset. Enjoy your new ride!!!
