I hope someone can help. I have a Giant TCR 'Hybrid' from 2006 and the headset needs replacing. It is a semi integrated headset with cartridge bearings. The diameter is 41mm. The original headset is market with 'made by lp for cane creek'.

Cane creek in the US say I need part VP-A10. I can't seem to source this online. Can anyone suggest where I can get a replacement headset? I don't mind if it is not a exact replacement, I just need something that will fit.

Thanks

    I am pretty sure any 1 and 1/8 inch semi integrated headset will do.

    Cane Creek has a wide range of them, starting from £ 30 and going up

    Thanks, but I think the problem lies in the diameter of the sealed bearing cartridge. It is 41mm, and most of the headsets I can find are wider than this. I need a semi integrated headset with a 41 mm bearing cartridge. I tried the can creek headset finder tool on their web site and it couldn't find a match.

    Any other ideas gratefully received.

    Giant TCR is a pretty standard frame/fork, I would be suprised if a standard integrated headset didn't fit...
    Walk down to the local shop and ask them, if in doubt
