    Replacement headset for Origin8 crawler?

    The headset went bad on my crawler and I managed to get it out along with the crown race. I'd rather replace it with a sealed bearing type headset (I'm not a bike tech) instead of the caged bearing type thing I pulled out of there. I've talked to a couple bike people and they said "any 1-1/8 headset will work, just don't get a threaded one". Naturally, the one I ordered doesn't fit correctly (https://www.amazon.com/FSA-Orbit-Hea...dp/B000AO5NXU/).

    I rather have a sealed bearing so I don't have to keep taking the fork off to grease the headset. Is there such a thing for this bike? If so, got a link? Thanks!

    I've been looking at a replacement headset for my crawler as well and was looking at the Cake Creek ones for it...

    I ended up replacing the caged bearings and throwing it back together today. Was told to go with a "ZS 44" (ZeroStack 44mm) headset if I wanted to go with a sealed bearing. I guess I'll try this one next: https://www.amazon.com/Cane-Creek-Ze...dp/B002SR9BW6/
