I have a frame on the way and I'm amassing parts. The web site say "standard 1 1/8". So, any thread-less will work? I find it confusing that they specify "standard". What else is there?

Mackgoo, standard means external cups. Avoid anything that says semi-integrated or integrated. The headset you want will have a visible upper and lower cup. 30mm head tube inner (from memory), which they all should be.

Can't wait to see it - and hear about it.

There are a multitude of other headset "standards" now in use: http://canecreek.com/component-headsets

The Salsa still uses a traditional 1-1/8" HS.

And the "headset fit finder" in shiggy's link is awesome.
