|Do these integrated headsets use a machined race pressed into the head tube which the cartridge bearings rest upon? If so, are these races removable?|

|the Cane Creek uses cartridge bearings that sit directly in the head tube. there are no pressed in cups in this design.|

|the term "integrated" is used too loosely to describe any nontraditional headset. Cane Creek makes types with a pressed cup and those without.

|Two types of integrated headsets
1. Integrated = no pressed in races. Race is machined into headtube of frame
2. Semi integrated, also known as Zero Stack = Pressed in races that sit inside of headtube rather than outside of headtube like a conventional headset.
Both use cartridge bearings.
The link below at park tools web site will give you a good pictorial breakdown and explaination of what the different types of headsets are.
Hope this helps, it helped me.
