    bronson v2 alloy

    hi everyone i am new here. just got myself a bronson frame in alloy. sorry for the stupid question or if someone has already asked it but i have been looking for hours to find a headset that will fit the frame all the numbers and codes on the bearings have really confused me.

    if someone could be helpful enough to point me in the right direction to what headset i need that would be great. links to the bearings/headset would also be much appreciated. uk only sites though.


    many thanks in advance.

    From SC bronson website: The SHIS name is ZS44/28.6 EC49/40.

    So ZS44/28.6 is the upper, EC49/40 is the lower.

    This headset will work (sized from this: https://chrisking.com/fit-finder):
    Chris King InSet 3 Headset | Chain Reaction Cycles

    or this headset (this comes on most SC builds):
    Cane Creek 40-Series ZS44 EC49-40 Tapered Headset | Chain Reaction Cycles

    I think Chain Reaction is out of the UK, if not sorry .

    Here are some links for a couple of vendor Sites:

    cheers guys but i don't think the head tube on the alloy version takes cups i think it just takes just the bearing dropped straight in.


    also CRC if probably the best site for me to get it from.

    If you still in doubt, call to SCB tomorrow, they have a great technical support department.
    That's why I still with Santa Cruz, they have the best customer service
