    Just built one of these a couple weeks ago, fun bike so far!

    It's definitely a bit confusing, but once you know the measurements you're looking for it's not too hard.

    44 refers to the diameter of the top of the frame's head tube
    56 is the diameter of the bottom

    The other two measurements you'll need are for the fork steerer - for a tapered, you'll need 28.6mm for the top and 40mm for the bottom.

    So a headset that said something like "ZS44/28.6 56/40" would be what you wanted for a standard tapered fork.

    Something like a cane creek 40 series should be around that price

    I ended up ordering the fsa no57.. do you know if the frame come with internal cups? From the pics it looks like it has an integrated headset... btw any pics of your build?
