Well now that i have to use zero stack...

I bought a frame a week ago and when i got it i realized i need a zero stack headset. Well not that im waiting for mine to come in, are there any comments from users about it? Good stuff to nkow or bad stuff. Ive heard from a while back how sucky they were and cane creek tech support replaces them.

It doesn't have to be too bad. I am living with it and am so far pretty
happy. Which frame did you buy?
Does it come with a headset or do you have to buy one now?
I'm assuming it's 1 1/8"

I will check back here and try to help you get set.

I bought a leader frame, im one a budjet right now (highschool) so yea, plus it have very good reviews so for 120 what the hell. Ive installed plenty of regular headsets so i dont imagine it will be that different, besides the size of the parts

I like my WTB zero-stack headset. I cant really compare it to much of anything though since I'm not exactly a headset expert

I also have a wtb and it pretty much sucks.I have to take it apart, clean it and replace the bearings way more than with any other I have had.
