|I've just purchased a Columbus Muscle fork online. Waiting for it to arrive I've been looking into what headset and stem to purchase. I'm considering a Cinelli Solido stem and Record threadless headset. The solido seems reasonable light without appearing too flexy and I won't have to cut off my arm to pay for it. Any thoughts or other suggestions??|

|I'd go with the Ritchey WCS. It's not the lightest but it is light (125 gms) and not cheap (80-90 mailorder) but not in the league of the $250 mag stems. It's also reliable and quite stiff.
I have no personaly history with the Campy Threadless headsets, but the record headset has apparently had a lot of problems. I'd go with Chris King.

|I've been using Campy Record threadless headsets since they were first introduced. They are easy to install and stay adjusted.
What kind of problem is it that this headset supposedly has?

|I have had Record headsets on my last two bikes. My Colnago had a 1 inch and my custom has a 1and1/8. I have not had a problem with either and unlike some on this board I cant justify the King pricewise when my Campy headsets have gone for years with no problems.|| |
