    Fuji Reveal headset ?

    Hopefully someone can assist with this issue, the bike is listed as having a "FSA NO.42B, 1 1/8 - 1.5 Caged bearings"

    so I assumed a FSA NO.42ACB would be a good replacement/ upgrade, however when I received it the bearings are to big to fit inside the 'cups' so I am confused, on the canecreek headset finder the bike is listed as a IS42/52 meaning the NO.42ACB should of worked.

    I talked with FSA and they think if I knock the cups out it should fit the NO42.ACB "if" the headtube was manufactured correctly, the current headset is probably a FSA NO42B/CUP model and the cups are supposedly the shape of the ACB bearing so the headtube is supposed to be shaped to fit integrated headsets (like the ACB)

    however I am unsure, I think its to risky to knock the cups out since I cannot find the NO42B/CUP or current headset anymore so if FSA is wrong I will be without a bike.

    Edit:
    Just updating my own post, knocking the cups out the frame the headtube is machined to take the FSA NO42.ACB headset, you will need to add a extra headset spacer in to accommodate for the 3m~ extra space the cup removal gives (ie your steerer tube will sit farther in the frame)
