Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Caad 8 headset type?

Did a search but can't find anything definitive - is the integrated headset in a Caad8 the IS (Cane Creek) or Campy standard?

Thanks.

So for Cane Creek headsets, the models with the little "i" after them are Campy. Such as IS-8i.

Of course you could just get an actual Campy headset
