    The top cup needs to be a semi-integrated (zero stack)...it doesn't appear that the this is the case with the Syncros.

    FSA Gravity DX Pro Tapered Headset

    Do you know if the one above works? It looks semi integrated at the top. Sorry about being a pain but this has kind of caught me out.

    Assuming your using a tapered fork...yes, the FSA will work.

    Another option is the Cane Creek 110...comparable to a Chris King. There is many options for that headset, and it is currently what I am running on my Tallboy. Normal Press-in external lower cup, semi-integrated upper cup. It looks completely custom compared to other bikes that are either or.

    I have the top part of a CK Inset ( 44 zs) for my Tallboy frame - is it possible to buy just the lower 1.5 traditional part?

    Thanks
