    Headset for 2007 Specialized SWorks Carbon HT

    I am turning to the forums for what should be a simple answer. I picked up a new 2007 sworks frame and I need to know from those who had a 2006/2007 carbon frame what headset it came with or what will work. (in 2008 they went to campy hiddenset standards 41.8).

    I went to 3 different bike shops and they each contacted specialzed and got different answers from it takes a Cane Creek (41 mm od bearings) to it takes a 41.8 mm OD bearing to finally it takes a specialized mindset headset.

    I have both a 41 mm and a 41.8 mm bearings and the 41 loosly fits inside but it sits too deeply inside the headtube and I must add a 3 mm spacer underneath the topcap. With the correct preload it should be fine, but I shouldn't need a 3mm spacer. The headtube ID using my calipers is something like 41.5 - 41.6 OD.

    The 41.8 bearing looks like it will fit if I "pressfit" it into the headtube and it certainly isn't a slipfit which I was told it should be.

    Any previous Sworks owners help and comments is much appreciated, this is the only thing holding me up from the build.
