pista concept headset

Hey Everyone I need to purchase a headset for my 2007 pista concept frame. However I know nothing about integrated headsets and was wondering if anyone can tell me which brands and which models would fit a bianchi pista concept. I know that the stock bicycle comes with a cane creek headset but im not a big fan of cane creek..However if cane creek is the only option I was wondering if anyone knows the model number or name? Thanks for the help!

A strategy I use is to find a retailer and see what headset they include stock with the frame and fork.

If your framset has an integrated headset, you should get all the headset guts with the frame.

Cane Creek, FSA, Ritchey, and WTB all are manufactured by TH Industries. You won't find a King integrated headset, so just use the stock one.
