Comments about Cane Creek 40 IS42/IS52 Tapered Headset:

I ordered this headset to replace the stock one on my 2016 Stumpjumper 6fattie. The stock one came out in pieces after only 5 months.
Installation was pretty straight forward. The bearings seem to be pretty high quality and are nice and quiet(another thing the stock ones lacked).
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the height of the bearings were considerably thinner than stock. I had to add 4mm of micro shims,also purchased here, to make up for that. An email to Cane Creek confirmed that the shims are fine and is actually common to use. I only knew enough to order the shims from a web forum. Had I not read that forum first, I wouldn't have known to order them. They are cheap and not a big deal but I would not have been happy if I found out at the time I was installing and had to wait another couple of days for them.
Other than that though, great product.

Chris King doesn't make an IS42/IS52 for my Norco Torrent, this Cane Creek has been solid and smooth. Looks stealthy and classy also.

          Cane Creek headsets are second to only Chris King and at 30% of the price, you can't go wrong. This headset was quick and easy to install and works smoothly. Bottom line, buy this headset
