    Intregrated Headset Problem

    I just got a leader 730tt frame to build up as a fixed gear and I am looking for cheaper headsets (broke college kid) and I know on the site it recommends the cane creek IS6 headset, but the IS2 headset by cane creek is also integrated but cheaper, so my question is will I be able to use that headset with my frame? Thanks in advance.

    Be sure to google around for the IS2. Some pretty good bargains out there.

    804RVA:

    IS2 and IS6 are compatible, quality of materials is the only difference. PricePoint has them on sale for 25 bucks.
