    Which Cane creek 110 headset for 2013 Trek Superfly

    I was wanting to upgrade my headset to the Cane Creek 110, but I'm not sure which one I need to purchase. Bike is a 2013 Trek Superfly with a tapered head tube. Thanks!

    I could tell you, but I won't, because why would you do that? If it's an alloy bike that takes press-in cups, you can only press them in and out so many times before they don't fit snug anymore. If it's a carbon frame with molded-in cups, there's just no point -- if you want a fancy cap just buy the cap. Wear out your current headset before you replace it, you won't save any weight by going to something else. Spend your $100 elsewhere.

    But, if you insist, then Cane Creek website has a headset finder that will tell you exactly which one you need.

    Well to be honest I over tightened the top cap and now one of the bearings makes a creaking noise. I just wanted to upgrade, but if the bearings that came with the bike are good enough, then I will just replace them. Its a carbon frame.

    I got a new Superfly Elite AL and the first thing I missed was my Chris King headset on my Paragon. I was told no Chris King will fit with the new headset on those frames (and I LOVE Chris King)--had a dealing with them and they are 100% Above and Beyond!!

    Add to that their stuff is Bullet-Proof, and made in the USA..

    --p.s. I tried the Cane Creek site to put my model bike in AND IT DID NOT WORK right!! There was a glitch on the website (wonder if it works right now)-----Or just did not work with my model bike???

    Just get a CC40 series. There really isn't $65 difference between their 40 and 110.

    Won't the FSA ACB #57 HS work, like on the 2012 SF100 Pro?

    On the flip side, I love my 110! I had to support my home state
