Which headset?

I put this up in the wrong section. Should have been here instead.

Having trouble figuring out which lower headset I need from Cane Creek for a 1 1/4" tapered fork and a 44mm head tube. Ideally I want a 110 series ZS44 and CC only lists one, the ZS44/30. Will that fit?

If not, then I have to get an EC44. But which one; the EC44/33 or the EC44/40?

Here's the link to the page. I emailed them last week but haven't heard back yet.
https://www.canecreek.com/product/110/

Thanks in advance.

More data on your frame and fork please. What's the fork's steerer taper? Only one end mentioned. What's the ID of the head tube? Dose it taper too? Andy

Sorry. Fork is a 1 1/8 on top and 1 1/4 on bottom. HT has a 34mm ID on top and a 44mm ID on bottom. I know I need a EC34 on top, but the bottom is a mystery for me.

You need an EC44/33 for the lower on an 1 1/4" fork. EC44/40 is for an 1 1/2"

No. The ZS44/30 is for an 1 1/8" steerer. The last number is the steerer crown race seat measurement(rounded off in some instances)

Anything over an 1 1/8" steerer requires an external(EC) cup in a 44mm head tube.

Gotcha. Many thanks.

That's kind of what I was thinking but I wasn't sure. Now I am.

I just got a warranty replacement 1.25" headset back from Chris King mine 1.25" grip nut.

(Special for Bike Friday, which passes a threaded fork steerer, past the top of the headset).

(they have set asides, for this , though no longer selling them new , now.)

their tapered set is this one ..
