    Which angle set headset for a Blur LTc?

    Although i haven't rode my Blur LTc since i got the Nomadc, i'm considering making it a good bit slacker.

    I'm considering getting a Works Components or a Cane Creek headset with an angle set so i can slacker it for 1.5 or even 2.
    The thing is i can't figure out which is the correct headset for my Blur LTc frame with a tapered fork
    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Their site says "most common sizes". I'd imagine they could put together a zs44/ec49 for you if you emailed or called your order in.

    Thanks kan, yeah i tought that too.

    BTW, i had emailed works components about this and just got their reply.
    They say the correct headset for me is EC44 / EC49 ...

    dboneslick, perhaps you forgot my fork is tapered??? (or was it works components fogetting?)

    I just built a blur LTc. There is a zs44 / ec49 cane creek 40 headset on it. I ordered it and pressed it myself. Call Santa Cruz if you are worried about it.

    If you buy a normal (straight) headset, then ZS44/EC49 is the correct one. But if you get angleset, then you need EC44/EC49 because the upper cup needs to have space for offset hole in it? At least this is my understanding and this is the case with all the Santa Cruz bikes that use tapered head tube (44mm upper bore and 49mm lower bore) AND tapered fork. Which I think is probably the case with all their new bikes excluding Nomad and V10C which both use straight 49mm head tube. For example the correct Cane Creek Angleset for Nomad is ZS49/EC49 (I use this myself).
