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

Help me understand what type of headset i have?

On my Felt, I have an FSA integrated headset with a non-tapered 1-1/8" steerer tube.
I'm trying to find its equivalent with other manufacturers, since FSA does not sell lower stack height dust cover.

The dust cover is 46mm in diameter.
The top bearing's external diameter is about 41mm
The internal bearing is marked:
TH INDUSTRIES1-1/8"
ACB 36 degrees x 45 degrees 873#

I believe this is the headset - the FSA Orbit IS Carbon: https://www.fullspeedahead.com/produc...rbit-IS-Carbon
I believe these are "Cane Creek Standard".

So,
How can i figure out which type will work from other manufacturers?
Since this headset is "Cane Creek Standard," does that mean that all Cane Creek headsets have those angle measurements?

Any integrated 1 1/8 headset with 36x45 will work with your bike.

Or in another words... any 1 1/8 cane creek spec will work. If somebody offers you a campagnolo one say no, the specs in the bearings are different.

Look always 3 things...

Integrated headset...

1 1/8

36x45 bearings.. those 3 things will give you a matching headset for your bike.

Integrated headsets have two standars... campagnolo and cane creek... your bike is cane creek spec... dont get complicated man, we can be talking headsets the whole week. The bore ID of the front tube are standardized is not something the manufacturer came out of the blue.

Yours is cane creek.. done with the subject.
