Headsets are an important part when it comes to the steering of your bike. The Cane Creek 40-Series IS42/28.6 Upper is the upper portion of the Cane Creek 40-Series headset. The 40-Series is the workhorse of the Cane Creek headsets and is robust, lightweight, and long-lasting. It features sealed black oxide bearings and a carbon-friendly compression ring captured in the top cover that keeps the shims in place. It is Interlok spacer compatible.

I bought this to replace an upper bearing and cap that had worn out from exposure (and poor maintenance on my part). Everything fit nice and snug over my steerer tube and in the head tube, and tightened up properly with an FSA compression plug. I have Cane Creek headsets on other bikes, so I expect this one to last many seasons.
