    2008 R3 headset

    Can anyone tell me which model of FSA headset is supplied with the white R3? I'm presuming it is an Orbit, but which one, CE?, IS? etc.

    Thanks.

    Good question. When I got my R3SL frameset it came with an FSA headset in a sealed plastic bag. No instructions, or obvious model marking. THe dust cap has IS2 written on it. Ditto when I got a Soloist and an R2.5 before that. On each occasion I remember hunting through the FSA headset handbook (a downloadable pdf from fsa's website) trying to work out what I had. I was only ever reasonably confident that I had worked it out.

    Thanks for that. I thought it looked like an IS. My frame arrives next week so I'll find out then I suppose!

    My new Cervelo R3 (White) went with Cane Creek headset.

    Mine too in the end - it seems absolutely fine.

    Would a Chris King headset work with the Cervelo frames?

    I can't speak to the specific model here, but I know that on at least some frames Cervelo uses an OEM-only FSA model. IIRC it's basically the same spec as the Orbit IS.

    No Chris King does not work with Cervelo Frames. Cervelo use integrated headset like from FSA and Cane Creek. Although integrated headsets from Campagnolo do not work.

    The headset bearings required for 2008 R3: FSA part number 160-6746 They are ACB 36x45d #873 6mm 1.125 top and bottom The carbon fiber top is Part Number: H2415 I know this an ancient post but these bearings are not longer easy to reference.
