    The Oryx website only identifies it as a Cane Creek unit. Have you tried
    contacting Oryx?

    Failing that, have a leaf through the FSA Headset Book - a 15Mb .pdf
    download:

    The Cane Creek ZST (No.10) on page 12 of the pdf (labelled page 8 in the
    document) looks a likely match, but check against the dimensions of the
    part you have.

    They did not provide telephone number, and I sent a letter to them, no
    replies yet.

    The bearing is caged , but not sealed. I measured the headtube, it 50mm.

    Whoops, I think I misread your post. You were looking for Oryx,
    not Cane Creek. Well, maybe Cane Creek can help ;-)))

    I wonder if you looked at the reference I gave you:

    http://www.fullspeedahead.com/downloads/headsetbook.pdf

    Cane Creek ZST (No. 10)
    Internal style headset
    For 50mm OD headtube
    1-1/8" steerer
    Chromoly cups
    5/32" Caged ball bearings

    The critical dimensions are given on the drawing.
