2002 Merckx Team SC Headset Question(3 posts)

2002 Merckx Team SC Headset QuestionHarlemCracka

To anyone who's had experience building a 2002 Merckx Team SC:

It appears that the fork has a 1" steerer tube, while the frame has a 1 1/8" head tube. The LBS I bought it from is advising me to install a 1" Campy Record hidden headset. The shop that's building it, is totally confused and doesn't see how that would work. They're contacting Gita Bike, but I'd like to see what you folks think.

Help, I just want to ride this baby!

Somewhere I recall a reference to the campy hiddenset that allows for a 1" steerer in a 1 1/8" headtube. It could be that the 1" really is the answer, as both 1" and 11/8" hiddensets use the same 42mm HT diameter, so you have to specify steerer diameter, being 1" in your case.

You're good! The shop just spoke with Gita, and learned the same thing.

Thanks
