I need a new integrated headset for a CAAD8 frame with a Slice carbon fork with an alloy steer tube. What type of FSA/Cane Creek headset will fit this? The C-Dale tech docs say "Alloy Steerer tubes use standard star nut preload assemblies" but I don't know what that means.

Campy standard...

C'dale has used the Campagnolo standard integrated headset in the past. To be sure, measure the OD of a bearing. It should be 41.8mm in diameter. The IS standard is similar, but the bearings are only 41mm in diameter and the contact angle with the fork crown race is 36 degrees instead of 45.

FSA and Cane Creek make headsets to the Campy standard.
