    I'm trying to find an 1 1/8" low-stack HS, but not an integrated one. I was looking at the FSA Orbit Z line, but would they hold up to a hard beating and not ovalize my HT? Are there any recomendations for low-stack headsets? Thanks!

    keep it properly tensioned and no half decent brand headset should ovalize.

    I found that Cane Creek has the lowest stack height.
    I've been using an S-2 for years with no probs.
    Pricepoint has them cheap also. Click here

    I just don't want my head tube to ovalize because the insertion isn't very deep.

    It's internal, not integrated. Integrated headsets use the headtube as a bearing surface, but this one has cups for the bearings.

    It's still a bigger bore than a standard headset.
