I have a headset question

HI guy's, I'm almost to finish my bike.
But I couldn't find right headset for my T-9 spec K2 myste frame.(look at the picture)
when I call to K2, they said it's 1 1/8 but what kind of headset should I buy?
I bought one already but doesn't fit.
thanks

You need either an internal or an integrated headset. K2 should have told you which type when you asked.

For a description of the differences:

Yeah, you have an integrated headset.

You could check out www.canecreek.com as well.

What year and model is this?

Send an email to Cane Creek.

From the K2 website, it appears your frame is a 2005. They should have an application list.

The can help you a lot more that I can.

Hard to say specifically which model you need.

Send a e-mail to Cane Creek they'll be able to tell you exactly which model to get.

As far as I have been able to tell, all headset's and frames labeled "integrated headset" are the same. The difference in some of those is just the stack height.
