    Strengths:    Bike shop said it was an easy Headset to press in. Easy maintence with the greese ports. Once adjusted, no need to worry. The 3 screw lockdown does not budge.

    Weaknesses:    Rubber seals began to rot after 5 years. WOW.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you are using threaded forks, get this headset. Clean cut, maintenance free. 100 bucks with shipping is expensive, but it will last a long time.

I would like to be able to switch between the forks, and was thinking if I used say a Chris King, I could use the Gripnut version for the threaded fork, the regular CK ahead se ... Read More »

    Threaded Fork converted to Threadless headset

    So why can't I use a threadless headset on a threaded fork? I couldn't answer that question. So I tried it before intalling. I put the threadless headset over the threaded fork and put the threadless stem on and all looked good. So I cut the threaded fork to length put my start nut in and comme ... Read More »

    Record threaded headset bearing grease...

    I'm about to install a new Record 1" threaded headset... - The bearings that are in the container come pre-greased and I was wondering if that's enough? - Can I just add some bearing grease (I don't have genuine Campa grease) or is it a bad idea to mix different types? - Or should I clean the beari ...
