    Headset for 34mm headtube - Kona Dew Plus

    Hello I just got this Kona Dew Plus frame. The internal diameter of the head tube is 34mm. I was wondering if anyone could help me pick the right headset for this frame ? I thank you all in advance for your help! Mateo

    please, can anyone identify this headset?

    Campagnolo, I think mid 1990s, no obvious name on it. If anyone can identify the model and even better tell me the stack height it would be greatly appreciated . The stack seems to be 43mm ish, but as a fork needs to be cut down, i’d like to be sure:smile:

    Specialized Future Shock headset bearing adjustment.

    It's a wee bit different and I'm only just getting my head around it. Have I understood it right? The main locking collar that is clamped by a 6mm hex from the right has two functions: it holds the shock unit in place and exerts upward pressure on the steerer to compress the bearing system...

    Simple headset. Can't thread bol

    Just trying to fix my daughters cheap mountain bike. The only components are as pictured. The bolt seats in the threaded hole at the bottom of the headset but not when the nut is in the tube - the nut has some slots on it, one of which seems to line up with a groove on the inner walls of the...

    Headset Stack Height. Help!

    Maybe I'm over thinking this or just getting old. The difference between length of steerer and headtube is 40mm. Therefore the stack height required for a new headset is 40mm. Correct or not? The question is will a 41mm HS do the job or does it need to be just under 40mm. Please don't direct me...

    1 1/8" threaded headset quill / expander bolt torque..

    Does anyone have any torque recommendations for the expander bolt on a 1 1/8" threaded headset please? I've just aligned the bars on my pub bike and made an effort to tighten the expander bolt to about where it was previously; checking this with a torque wrench suggests around 5N.m. I can't get...

    Headset caps

    Has anyone tried any of the 'gimmicky' replacement headset caps? I saw one which was a compass which is an awesome idea, but reviews said it didn't really work or was too unreliable unfortunately. Quite like the idea of a clock there though. Anyone tried any others, even if it's just something...

    Headset advice - SOLVED

    I have changed the stem on my 2014 Genesis Volant. As a result I now have a very slight looseness through the headset and I don't know why. It was not there before the change (so it is not the bearing wear). Nor is it like that Volkswagen ad, where something else is loose. The only different...

    Stem headset tightening

    Or: Am I missing the blindingly obvious? So here's the headset on the newly rebuilt bike. Notice scratches from spanner. It won't stay tight: either it is hard to steer, or the forks wobble. Sometimes, by way of variation, they do both. I'm not sure how they manage that either. A couple of...

    Strange headset issue!

    Hi all, just about completed a new build on an old frame. I noticed that my Shimano 600 headset was missing the lock washer that goes between the top race and the locking nut. When I rode the bike the headset was often loosening off, so I put this down to the missing lock washer. Anyway I bought...

    One Inch Headset Die

    Hello everyone. I have spent two years looking for suitable forks for my crash damaged Graham Weigh. I thought I was there but it turns out a small section of threads are damaged. Would this section be improved enough by running a tap down it? Does the average LBS still have such tools...

    Shimano cable stops/adjusters

    This may be a simple question with an equally simple answer but it has me struggling at the moment. Is it possible to find Shimano stops to replace the down tube levers and enable me to install STI brakes. See photo for braze on design.

Its condition is...

    The headset bearings on my genesis delta 10 need replacing as they are very worn. I have been searching for a week and can't for the life of me understand what I need to get.

    Servicing a Headset

    I have replaced cartridge bearings before and whilst they are easy I've usually found the most difficult part is identifying then sourcing the exact one you need. The good thing about them is it's easy to tell when they need replacing as there is a noticeable shake in the steering. My Genesis...

    I shall soon be swapping my headsets. I'm reasonably confident in servicing my current headset - taking it apart, greasing bearings, putting back together etc I've never changed a headset before, but I had assumed (perhaps naively) that it would just be a case of taking the current one apart...
