I was wondering if there is a headset that I could use on my 2012 trek Marlin Gary Fisher to change from a 1 1/8 fork to a 1 1/8 by 1 1/2 tapered fork. I can't find any info on my bike to tell which headset I would need. If you could help it would be great. Thank you very much.

Answer: 
IF this frame has a semi intergrated headset as standard, which I think it has. and IF the I.D is 44mm. Then like I have recently done with a 2009 Norco, a Hope pick and mix top cup 2 and bottom cup H will perform this conversion.... I hope it works for you as it has me...

Answer: 
I had the same problem and eventually found the ideal headset. Go for a Chris King.
More expensive, but basically fit and forget. Had mine on MTB for 8 months now and never missed a beat.

Answer: 
You need to remove your headset assembly and measure the internal diameter of your frames headtube (top and bottom) to identify your headset standard. Alternatively, your local bike shop will be able to check/ confirm for you.

Answers

Answer: 
The Thomson stems are not supplied with a matching top cap (as a general rule, stems do not include top caps; these are supplied as part of the headset in most instances), so you would need to buy the Cap separately (either on its own or as part of the upgrade kit, both linked below).

Headset for Giant XTC Composite 2013

I'm looking for a headset to use in my 2013 XTC 29er Composite frame - normally comes fitted with the OverDrive 2 steerer.

I want to put in a standard 1 1/5" to 1 1/8" steerer.

Any recommendations?

Answer: 
As you have Overdrive 2 you must source the headset you require from a Giant dealer. Overdrive 2 is a Giant specific product. It is not possible to fit a standard headset into Overdrive 2.

Answer: 
Not being a Whyte dealer I can't be certain, but going by the spec listed on their website, the '11 805 runs a semi-integrated headset (44mm diameter) so any of the sets linked below should be fine for a 1.1/8" steerer

Answers

Answer: 
The lowest stack height headsets are the Integrated Standard; but not every frame is Integrated Headset compatible.

The best advice is to measure the internal diameter of the frames head tube (top and bottom) and contact our Technical Department with this information -

Answer: 
This frame requires a 1 1/4" to 1 1/8" headset due to the fork steerer diameter.

At present we do not have a headset which can fit this standard.
