2012 Sutra frameset - headset and bottom bracket

Hi,
Could you please provide me with the specs for the headset and for the bottom bracket which I should buy for my 2012 Sutra frameset.

The http://2k12.konaworld.com website has very little information about that. There is ĎTH 848í headset, and I suppose that means FSA TH-848, but they donít produce it anymore and I cannot find any information about it on FSA website.
E.g. if Cane Creek 40.EC34 (http://www.canecreek.com/products/headsets/forty) will do?

And I also have the same problem with the bottom bracket. I would like to install some nice old-fashioned square type BB, but again Iím not sure which size exactly I need.
E.g. the Shimano BB-UN55 has three types of width (68mm, 73mm and 70mm) and 7 types of length (107mm, 110mm, 113mm, 115mm, 118mm, 122,5mm, 127,5mm). Which one should I buy?

Thanks a lot!

Hi, the head tube uses a 1 1/8" external cup headset. Huge choice in that size.

BB shell is 68mm with an English thread. Lots of choice in old school square taper there.

One more question.
What is the chainline of the frame?
Thanks!

The frame has a 68mm BB shell, the chainline will hinge on the type of BB and crankset.

The parts will come with instructions to setup ideal chainline around that shell size.
