    What headset for Mach 5.7?

    Ive just bought a used Mach 5.7 alloy frame and need to buy a headset. I believe I need a zero stack semi-integrated tapered headset, but I cant figure out which to go with. I dont know which bearing size (OD) or cup depth the frame will accept.

    Can anyone suggest a specific headset I should buy? Looking to spend $50-80.

    Detail

    Spooky, came on to post exactly the same Q!

    Mines a 2011 Frame and I wondered whether this would do the job.

    Go to the Chain Reaction web site ans search for the following as I can't add links!Cane Creek
    ZS-3 / XX Flush Tapered Headset

    Zero stack, 44 mm upper, 56 mm lower. Also listed on the Pivot site: Tech Info | Pivot Cycles - Mountain Bikes for XC, Trail, Downhill

    I'm partial to Cane Creek and their 40 series meets your price point
