    fsa headsets and felt head tubes

    hi,

    i have a used felt fc team frame that i am attempting to build up and am having some problems with the headset. i have a fsa integrated 36/45 orbit IS. it seems to be too big. on further inspection it seems that the head tube has a metal bearing race inserted in it which is what is stopping the cartridge bearings from going in correctly. does anyone know anything about this? do i need a 36/36 integrated headset?

    thanks!

    If the headtube has a metal cup inserted in the end flairs, it sounds like you need a "Zero Stack" headset rather than an "Integrated" headset.
