1" Threadless ?!#$%* Headset(14 posts)

1" Threadless ?!#$%* HeadsetNJRoad
Apr 17, 2002 7:09 AM
Why has it become so impossible to find a decent, inexpensive 1" threadless headset? I see all kinds of great deals on 1-1/8", but its becoming difficult to even find a 1" headset much less an affordable one. As far as I know 1-1/8 headsets only started becoming common on roadbikes in the last year or so. What gives? Anyone have any sources?

Thanks, but I guess I'm in a different income bracket because I don't consider $56 inexpensive for a headset, I've seen plenty of 1-1/8" in the $30-$40 range.

Nashbar has DiaCompe Aheadsets for 27.00. While it is not a sealed bearings unit, it still does the trick for me. I figure that if it's good enough for MTB, then it is good enough for me. Also Supergo has Campy Threadless for 43.00.
Good luck.

PS Look at MTBReview for a better review of headsets than the Road Version.

Thanks everyone for replying so quickly and with so many options but after looking into it I am convinced that there is a conspiracy to get us all to buy new frames with 1-1/8" headtubes and as soon as that's done we'll have to trade those brand new frames in for one's with integrated headsets.

They make some pretty impressive headsets, and they're pretty cheap ( i think this model is around 20$ USD). They even developped an integrated 1" threadless headset. Definitely what i'm getting with my new fork!

Shimano's STX and SC 105 are admirable little headsets with replaceable sealed bearings...

Usually helps, but you were on the right end of the bike. Some aren't.
