Hello all. I own a 2000 Cannondale CAAD 4 frame with a 1" Cane Creek C2 headset. I was curious if the Campy Record 1" hidden head set would work with my head tube? I know the 2001 C'Dale's use the 1 1/8" headset, but would the 1" integrated work with mine? Thanks people.

you would have to contact Cannondale. The Merckx Seam SC's integrated can be replaced. The Giant TCR's cannot - I asked an online retailer, and that was what he told me. He also told me to check with Giant.
it won't workTig

Record hidden sets are for integrated head tubes only and would not work on a standard head tube. The integrated headsets require the races to be integrated into the head tubes, whereas the standard headsets use cups (included with the headset) that are pressed into the head tube.

If you want a really good headset upgrade, go with Chris King. They aren't cheap, but are considered the best.
