I've done a fair bit of searching through the forum. Found plenty of bikes plenty of posts but all the giants with the OD2 standard seek to be using the official giant/FSA headset at 200g. Anybody found using anything different?

Why not use one of the Acros headsets as done by Canyon? No nut required... works a treat... light!
