Morning all

I need some help buying a new headset for my Pinnacle Iroko 1 2011. It currently has a VP 1-1/8 Semi-integrated Semi-cartridge headset but I have bought a new fork with a tapered steerer so the old one is no longer compatible. I know that the 2012 frame came with a tapered headset FSA XX44 for 44mm ID but cant find it on any of the normal bike shop websites. Can anyone recommend one similar to the FSA or would a hope mix and match bottom cup work.

    If your bike came with a plain 1.1/8 steerer fork, its almost certain you cannot fit a tapered fork.

    Just spoke to Dave at Evans and it would appear that a 44 external cup would work. So I have a look at Hope
