I have a Cane Creek IS41 inegrated headset Tahoe sits 2-3mm deeper in the frame and I need some spacer shims to adjust it. Where can I buy spacer shims?

    Do you mean the spacers? Any LBS/internet place will do them.

    Not the fork spacers, the shim washers that adjust the height of the bearings inside the frame.

    2-3mm is a big gap, are you sure you have the correct headset for the frame?

    Yes it is the correct headset, acording to Cane Creek. I found more reviews though with the same problem...? How can I find if another headset fits better?

    did you use the cane creek headset finder? i've tried it in the past for two different bikes and found it completely wrong in both cases

    the frame manufacturer should be able to tell you the correct headset, otherwise you will need to measure carefully and then look for a matching one

    this fsa catalogue has full measurements for various types of headset, it's a good reference to use when trying to find a match...

    Just take the old headset down to your LBS and match it up against their stock. Job jobbed.
