As I have previously never had a frame that needs one of these, I am totally in the dark as to sizes fitment etc...

Got a Merida Mission Race LRS frame...C 05...that has one of these in...though top race/cover is missing.

Think its a OEM FSA model...

Any one help with the missing part, or a suitable replacement...are they all the same ?

Cheers K

like bertroot above..i also got a crown race from ukbikestore for my fsa acb headset...what parts exactly are you missing? any pics of the bike so we can help?

maybe try this link http://www.shopwiki.co.uk/fsa+headset to see which headset yours looks like?

is it this one?
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FSA-Orbit-CE-Inte ... 3f03eb901f

can you measure ID of your headtube..should be 44mm-50mm..that will help as the OD of the headset vary
