    Right headset for Krampus frame?

    Got my Krampus frame yesterday and now I'm looking for the right headset.

    Steering tube inner diameter is 44 mm, fork tube has 1 1/8" alias 28,6 mm.

    Stock Krampus has a Canecreek 40 series for 44 and so I looked at the cancreek website:


    So which of these will fit? Best for me would be a very tall headset because I want a higher handlebar and don't want so much ugly spacers.

    The value of 44 is clear. But why is there the number 40? The fork tube has 28,6 - I cannot see a number 40 here

    The number 40 refers to the model/series of headset.

    They have a 10 series, 40 series, and 110 series.

    15mm stack height is the most you can get.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    •Internal top cup and external bottom cup

    •Bottom Cup Type / Depth: External 20mm
    •Stack Height: 20.9mm
