My bike is a 2008 Tricross Comp. I asked Specialized (via e-mail) about headset compatibility and the response was that the Mindset headset is proprietary and had to be replaced with another Mindset.

I used the Headset Finder tool on Cane Creek's site and based on the 2009 model, any of the integrated headsets would work.

I am hoping someone browsing the forums can comment on any fit or installation issues of not using a replacement sold by Specialized.

Thanks.

The S-3 will fit I believe the S-1 will as well the S-6 needs a shim to fit. Specialized likely didn't mention that you need a special tool to remove all of the mindset from the frame. In the end I just kept my mindset as it was still good and not worth the hassle to swap it.
