- Hope headset bewilderment
I’m in need of a new headset for my bike.
It’s a ZS44/56 frame, with a tapered fork, and I’ve been offered a Hope Tapered headset by someone I know with very little use for an extremely good price. However, the seller is very short of information, so all I really have to go by is this image:
Now, this leaves me with 2 questions:
1/ Is this actually the right size for my frame? and fork combo? I’m pretty sure it is, and this page seems to support that.
2/ Now he’s admitted that he thinks there is ‘a part missing’; Now, as far as I can see, there may be a bit of the Hed doctor thing that’s AWOL (but I don’t care about that TBH), but to me it looks like everything else is there APART from the crown race. Has anyone got one and can confirm this?
Any help appreciated!Posted 2 years ago
All looks present except the race you mentioned and a top cap/bolt.
The HeadDoctor looks complete to me – minus a topcap and bolt – but you can use any other availablePosted 2 years ago
Hardto say if its the right size. Off the top of my head you need a 2E – this looks like a 2E…Posted 2 years ago
Is the part top right not a crown race?Posted 2 years ago
where are the cups?
edit, actually are they the 2 on the bottom, they look well shallow..Posted 2 years ago
No @dangeourbrain – that’s the shims to fine tune the seal drag on the top cup.Posted 2 years ago
Fair do. Never seen one of those in my headsets before.Posted 2 years ago
Can you ask them to measure the OD of the cups?Posted 2 years ago
