|1" Threadless ?!#$%* Headset||NJRoad|

|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.
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...
