It is an OEM headset that was manufactured specifically for Giant. I spoke Giant and they don't have any spares. They told me to contact FSA and up to this point FSA has not been very helpful at all.

Okay, now that makes more sense, customized OE stuff I'm not a big fan of for reasons just like this...what happened to the original crown race you had with the bike? Did you post this on the Giant forum here?

I have a 08 Giant Trance X2 frame I got off ebay....Giant uses the Internal/integrated type headset. Here's a pic of a Giant/FSA internal/integrated headset I bought a while back:

FSA makes two versions of 1-1/8" internal, the Orbit ZS with shallow cups and the Orbit Z with deep cups (I believe my Trance X came with the Orbit Z deep cups and the deep cups are what's in the pic link above).

From the FSA webstore, they sell crown races...(I have the Orbit Z one highlighted):

Hi those links are dead and can't seem to fit my Nixon Elite fork in it. While my fox f series 32 would slide right in. With the Marzocchi Nixon Elite crown has a big space on the bottom. The bottom bearing on the Anthem oem headset doesn't seem to com out either. Thanks for any advice.

I take it there is no way to fit a chris king headset in there?
