    CaneCreek 110 headset in Air9Carbon

    Anyone using a 110 headset in their Carbon frame. How well did the upper bearing fit.????
    Thanks

    Air9 Carbon takes integrated headset. Do they make a 110 integrated headset? All the one's I have seen are threadless type. Also, I am not certain, but the AIR9 Carbon I think comes with a headset and 2 crown races-one for tapered steer tubes and one for traditional.

    Cane Creek 110 does come as integrated headset. Problem is the A9C takes an upper integrated bearing according to Italian (Campy) standard. ISi in Cane Creek lingo. They don't make the 110 in that size.

    The difference in the Italian upper and the Cane Creek upper is very little. It still uses a 45 degree contact point, so the Cane Creek 110 for integrated works, but you have to use the thin spacers under the upper headset cover so it doesn't sit on the frame before compressing the bearings for correct adjustment.
