Thought I would share this for anyone strugeling to sort a headset for the above bikes. Ok the smoothie fits fine but is a bit heavy (169gm) and after some research found this Gusset mix n match headset at £31.58 from Wiggle and weighing 127gm it also comes with 1 1/8th and 1.5 crown race which is split for easy installation also included is a star nut. Quality seems as good as the smoothie but lighter and far better value as its £20 extra for the 1.5 crown race for the smoothie. This is a 1 1/8 zero stack top 2 (zs44/28.6) and a 1 1/8 external bottom E (ec49/40)http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/superhondaman/image_zps971831a8.jpg
Lurcher/Race29er/Scandal/Dirty Harry Headset solution
I have one of these with the same bearings, 2 crown races and legendary back up service...
As above, the superstar one is great.
Wont work for the Dirty Harry though as its got an integrated bottom cup not an external one.
I used Hope for my Lurcher.
Quality seems as good as the smoothie
So basically made from paper mache and chewing gum.
