|I am having a newly purchased C40 frameset built up. My LBS is planning to use the Colnago Corsa threadless headset that came with it. When I look through magazines, it seems all the team bikes have other types of headsets but none have the Corsa. Is it because the Corsa is a POC? Anybody ride with one?|

|I don't ride a Colnago, but the pro bikes you see have other headsets on their C-40's because that's the deal with the component manufacturers - they want you to use ALL of the parts in the group usually if they sponsor a team. Look at the old Mapei or current Rabobank Colnago's and you will see a Shimano threadless HS which is actually a modified threaded headset.
I am sure the headset is not a POS, especially on a bike of that quality. Same with the Pinarello integrated headsets.

|Sell it to me. I'm thinking of ordering one because of the taller stack height, less spacers required.|| |
