If you don't get an answer here try contacting Klein, they usually get back to you within a couple of days. I sent in a question a couple of years ago and it was answered by Gary Klein himself. They also have a tech guide you can download and your answer might be in there somewhere.

... I've already downloaded Klein's pdf files on the subject, but their "answer" is too vague.

This is one of those potential problems associated with different types of integrated systems (I recently acquired a Cannondale which uses a Campy Hiddenset). I know that in the recent past, Klein used a proprietary system... and I see they still use the nomenclature (Airhead) but I'm unsure if it's the same system as years gone by. They also mention Cane Creek IS but don't clarify...

Oh well, to paraphrase a bit... "Those having the worst time dealing with change are those who live through it..."

I'm lookin' for a quick and easy answer... but I guess I'll call a Klein dealer or two and see what's up...

I know what you mean. I changed the bearings in my Cane Creek headset last year. I don't know what they use in the Q-Pro Carbon (a very nice frame I might add). I played around on their site and built a bike and had it up to around 5K. The paint job was $600 extra. I'd love to have one of those Q-Pros, but later down the road I'll just rebuild my old '99 Quantum Race.

As a side note- I contacted Klein and told them if Gary Klein contacted me himself I would buy a new Klein. Well, he did and I did not buy a new Klein, I went with a steel bike. But that old Klein is sure one sweet ride.....
