I too have been paranoid about this, but I hadn't thought about the headset cups. Are you just saying to let it happen? Or are you just saying that I only have to hit the headset removal tool a little harder with a hammer? I have a Chris King headset, so it is not like I am going to change it.gmcastil said:Assuming a threadless headset with a carbon fork, the only thing you'll really need to worry about are the seatpost and bottom bracket.
Complications? I learned very early on that any quality build involved coating every metal to metal interface with grease. Seat post, headset cups, BB cups, etc. And this was with steel frames and steel BB cups and head sets. Al seat posts get stuck in steel frames all the time if they're not greased. There is zero complication relative to Ti frames - you just use the same good practices that have been in place for many, many decades (perhaps more than a century?).gmcastil said:I've personally eschewed titanium frames because I don't like having to deal with all the complications that you're considering. Of course, that's only my opinion - at least you're aware of the problem. I've had to free a seized (titanium) seatpost from a (titanium) frame. Ultimately got it out, but no anti-seize or grease had been used.
