    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 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 »

    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 ...

    Threaded Headset Stack Height Change Question

    I'm thinking of changing out my 1" Shimano 600 headset for Campy, since all my other bits are campy. The headset I'm looking at has a shorter stack, 2.8cm. The Shimano has a 4.6 stack. So generally speaking, how much play (if any at all) is there with the fork to the threaded top lock nut? I've ... Read More »

    Threaded headset loosens

    I had it apart for a re-grease and clean. I must have lost the touch because it keeps backing off and becomes loose after a few miles. Both the threaded race and top nut will turn together. Getting frustrating...any tips?Read More »
