Headset with Epic S-Works 08 frame ?
The Specialized website says....
"1 1/8" threadless, Campy spec integrated sealed cartridge bearing"
but I got a Cane Creek headset in the box with the frame ?
Anyway, anyone know what model of Cane Creek headset this might be? It came in a small unmarked cardboard box, so I'd like to download the right manual from the Cane Creek website ?
c'est la vie
Cane Creek does not actually manufacturer the headset, the design is licensed to a Taiwanese company who in turns supplies Specialized. The kit appears to be of good quality. It has been a few months since I contacted Cane Creek but if memory serves me well I was steered to this manual:
Read it carefully if you have not installed an IS headset before. The new one for me was the gap between the bearing cover and top of the head tube; no gap and the headset will not turn. If this happens, a spacer will be necessary. From the pdf:
“Ensure that the gap between the upper bearing cover and the top of the head tube is at least 0.5mm after preloading. “
One other link which is good to have:
Other then this, setting up the rest is very similar to a traditional headset except you need no special equipment to press the bearings in.
Hope this helps.
It certainly does - thank you.
