    Headset Help Please

    I am very happy guy to have a new frame from Kish. It is just beautiful. Now it's time to build it up. I received the top and bottom headset part numbers from Kish.

    Cane Creek 110 series
    Top: BAA0152K
    Bottom: BAA0159K

    I was wondering if anyone knows if Hope has a cross reference headset for the CC. Nothing wrong with CC but I have pedals, spacers, seatpost clamp, and another part or 2 in Hope Orange. Hope makes headsets but not sure it'll fit. I have an email out to Hope but those Brit's will take a few days to respond. Figured I'd ask here.

    Little added info. Fork is a Parlee, it's light and offers me the width for wider tires and disc brakes I wanted over the Enve. Enve looks nicer to my eyes though.

    Frame (stripped and no fork) is Ti and came in at 3.75 lbs. I expected 4lb plus. Going with Shimano Ultegra R800 disc.

    I would forget part numbers. Just ask Kish what style and size headset will work and go from there.

    THIS.

    Although it reads like your Kish has a 44mm straight bore headtube....hence the EC44/ZS44 cup recommendation.

    It should he fairly easy to find an alternate headset. You can either find the technical data showing the dimensions on the recommended cane creek head set or the head tube dimensions of the frame. Then it is just a matter of finding one that fits your head tube. It needs to match the fork tube too. Good luck

    Is it 1-1/8 Aheadset or 1-1/2x1-1/8 ?

    Ask Kish and then ask Hope

    The lower looks like it's for a 1-1/4" tapered fork, the CC part # for the lower gives ZS44/37. I didn't see a listing on Hopes site for that size.
