Scott cr1 owners- headset Q?

by Leigh2612   June 17, 2013  

Hi guys,
I mainly ride MTB until the past couple of years. I wasn't great at maintaining that... And am worse on my road bike (cr1 comp 2012). I am due a new headset .. Any ideas what will fit or what measurements I need?
Cheers!!

The nice people at Scott sent me the answer-

your Scott CR1 is 1 1/8 semi integrated with 44mm cups

Cheers!

i've a Scott Cr1 Pro (2010)and using the Cane Creek website I found the following headset which is consistent with your feedback from Scott. I've bought it from Wiggle but havn't fitted it yet!

Have you or Leigh fitted the headset successfully yet? That would be the final confidence inspiring test that you've got the correct part - then the rest of us can go a purchase the same Wink

If you would be so kind as to post back here once you have done so, that would be great.

Your link leads to two sizes - short and tall. Which did you choose and how did you make that decision?

Hi guys,
Fitted mine no issues. I got a ritchey sealed bearing unit but wish I had seen the cane creeks before... I had a 40 on my MTB which was super smooth.

I don't suppose you have a link to the Ritchey unit you bought? When I look on sites such as Wiggle, I see lots of different sizes even for semi-integrated pressfit 1 1/8 (OD 40mm, or OD 50mm, and some have additional sizing such as OD 50mm x 12.4) so its a minefield trying to determine the exact make model and size. If you have that to hand it would be helpful (I asked a local scott dealer and he couldn't tell me the exact information either and is checking with Scott but so far no reply).
