Dumb Headset/head tube question.(3 posts)

Dumb Headset/head tube question.gray8110
Oct 7, 2002 6:42 PM
What is the actual diameter of the headtube on a 1-1/8" frame?? I bought a frame with what was advertised a a 1" headtube, and have a corresponding fork and headset.. but I drop the headset in and it's clearly not meant for a 1" fork and headset. I'm going to return the headset and fork (and the frame sellers expense) but I want to make sure I don't have some freaky sized headtube. What should the diameter be if it is 1-1/8"

11/8" headtubes take 34mm cups.

The answer to headset dimensions was just posted, a few questions down.
