asked by: a guest Does this fit a 2008 Trek Fuel EX 5.5?
anwered by: canteau Based on the information we have the Cane Creek 40 EC34 should fit your Trek Fuel EX 5.5. Before ordering it's not a bad idea to remove your headset cups and measure the frame to be sure. It should measure 34mm

Bought this to replace the stock aheadset which was in my stumpy. That one lasted 3 years - 3000 miles (?) and only failed because I dented the upper cup somehow.
I don't see the point in spending a ton of money on a headset when even the cheapest one (aheadset) will do just fine.
I got this middle of the road one because the price was only a bit over the entry level one. I am sure it will last me forever as long as I don't dent the cup again...
The only downside: The top cap included with this headset was too small to actually cover my stem (using a spesh stem with that adjustable angle bushing in it). Cane Creek told me just to re-use the one from the stock headset which I did.
