Yep, yet another 08 equipped headset singing the blues. It's popping and creaking like crazy. Has anyone tried removing the headset,facing the headtube, and reinstalling? Or is this my reason to go ahead and order that blingy blue 110ZS that will match so well?

Definitely upgrade - those stock "cane creeks" are crap. Manufactured by some other company with Cane Creeks name slapped on it.

Either way though, you're probably going to want to have that headtube faced. It's pretty likely that a 110 will creak, if it is not faced.

I'll definitly be facing the headtube. Yeah I figured that was the case, it doesn't quite look the quality of a cane creek. I'll start surfing & price checking. Kinda sucks to replace the headset with only 225 miles on the bike though.
