What kind of headset does GT ZR 1.0 use?...........(4 posts)

What kind of headset does GT ZR 1.0 use?...........Nebuladds

Integrated, where there are no bearing cups? Or does it use the zero stack, where bearing cups are pressed in?

If it uses the integrated kind, are there any durability issues? Are there ANY kinds of problems associated with it?

Mine is a 2001 model, same as the Lotto bikes, but it's blue\yellow instead of the Lotto colors. It takes a "standard" 1 1/8" headset, it's not integrated.

Here are two pictures. The first one is clearly integrated (either that or it's a zero stack).

The second, however.........I'm not sure. I'm ordering it online. The guy said that it's integrated, but also went on to say that the bearing cups are pressed into the frame.

Which of these two does your frame look like?

Mine looks like the one in the repair stand. IMO, the bike pictured in the link looks like the same frame too, it just has a zero stack height headset, (even though it says integrated in German). The headtube doesn't seem to have enough flare to use an integrated headset.
