    Nice bike!

    You need basically any "IS" (Internal Standard) headset. Cane Creek makes IS2, IS3, IS4, etc. and they have better materials with higher number, but the IS describes the fit to the frame.

    The other standard is Campagnolo's standard. The diameter is half a millimeter (!) different, and the angle of the conical seat might be different too, not sure.

    IS is the more common one, so just about any headset will "probably" work.

    FYI, same standard as common Trek aluminum frames, thousands of those sold, so should be lots of spares to choose from.

    You might not have the reversable seat post. That's the one that turns around.
