    Just a quick one, I am looking for a cane creek headset to fit my e thirteen reducer cups but the ones listed to fit it don't seem to be made anymore or at least I can't find them, I had planned on getting a cane creek is2 but can't get one so have been looking at the is3, will it fit the same? I would assume so but don't won't to go ahead with it without checking.

    I've been getting a few emails about the ZeroStack lately, so I think I'll sticky this one.

    The ZeroStack uses the bearings/compression ring/etc from most Integrated Standard (IS) headsets, such as the Cane Creek S3.IS (also called IS-3), or FSA Orbit IS. The headsets use the 873-2RS 36/45 degree bearing . As far as I know, only CaneCreek and FSA have the rights to this bearing design, but it is fairly common.

    Any from here work:

    CaneCreek has changed their part numbers around several times in the last year, so anything “IS-3” should be fine. The bearings press directly into the ZeroStack cups, and then the headset is assembled as normal.
