    I think it is any integrate tapered headset. I’ve bought an aerozine one. Didn’t fit in frame though as someone had been kicking it around and the head tube was oval and dinted.

    cane creek do them, there are quite a few on the various big online bike shops. No bargains though.

    I built this a few weeks ago: looks great to me and is a replacement for an Inbred 29er (now converted to rigid). Just need my broken leg to mend before I can ride it. Enjoy.

    Did you overspray or tape the logo on top of the downtube. Or is is missed off?

    Tried to overspray but the graphics started peeling. Tape works very well.

    I have a Yelli, the Parkwood figures are very similar except the chain stays are a tad longer. You may or may be bothered by that.

    Side by side I’d choose the Yelli because of that, however a new Yelli is 800 quid not 200 quid for the PW.

    Any longer term updates on these from any owners?

    Keen to hear about what headset used etc

    Aerozine headset is fine after 2 ride. The bike is ace. replaced a Specialised stumpjumper FSR (for sale, Newcastle £500). It is considerably lighter and I think I’ll miss the springy back end for rocky stuff but on my normal trails it is fantastic. I was sceptical about the whole 29er but it really does seem to offer advantages in terms of rolling and grip.

    Geometry, as with all on-one bikes is spot on. Relaxed and I feel like I’m sat in it rather than on it which, along with grip, inspires confidence.

    Mine’s built up with Rebas, Crest hope hoops, x-kings, SLX groupset and on-one finishing kit. Charge spoon with green base looks nice with the green graphics.

    Hi Parkwood owners… Pretty set on one of these but unsure what size I need. I’m right in the middle of medium and large, does anyone have one close ish to Oxford area I can have a sit\ bounce on?
    Cheers!

    Lots of confusion over headsets – no reason for this at all really.

    This is what I bought for a 1 1/8″ straight steerer:

    BAA0087 Cane Creek Headset Bearing 52mm (1.5″) 40 Series Steel
    £10.00

    BAA0463A Cane Creek Crown Race Reducer, 52/30mm (1.5″ – 1″1/8) 110 Series
    £8.00

    BAA0092K CANE CREEK 40 SERIES IS42 INTEGRATED 1 1/8 INCH HEADSET
    £22.00

    If you have a tapered steerer then you need BAA0173A Cane Creek Crown Race, 52/40mm (1.5″) 110 Series.

    UK Bike store have a comprehensive range of pick and mix Cane Creek headset offerings – just pick the ones you need for your fork. I opted to buy a complete 1 1/8″ headset to address the upper simply as it comes with two bearings – it works out cheaper to do it this way than to buy a replacement bearing on its own. Also note the crown race reducer is from the 110 series: price difference is marginal from the 40 series but materials/sealing is better.
    The prices stated reflect purchases made some two months (or more) previous.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi. Thanks AL1967 for headset advice. Just ordered Parkwood frame and don’t really like FSA headsets. Big fan of Cane Creek. For now riding Scandal v2, with Mixer smoothie. Not the best headset ever either. Can someone confirm, that frame is designed for 120mm travel fork? Or maybe 120mm is max travel, and design is for 100mm? I know it’s bit late now, to ask for it, once I’ve ordered frame, but still better ask now then later. According to thumbs up rule, will frame take 100mm- 140mm fork, or 80mm- 120mm? Thanks.

    I think somewhere back there Brant said 140 wasn’t a good idea.

    As for FSA Vs CaneCreek, most of both brands headsets come out of the TH Industries factory.

    Thanks for reply. Just been on the phone with On One. Been told, that 140mm will be ok. Frame is optimised for 120mm, but anywhere from 100mm- 140mm should be fine. As for headset, I use to have FSA Orbit, CK, Cane Creek S3, 40 and curently 110 on my Salsa Bandito. I’m finding Cane creek designe and durability, superior to other brands. CK is good, but 110 better. 😉
    If you looking to get headset by AL1967, and don’t want to buy whole headset (BAA0092K), to address the upper, then you can get just the upper bit. Part number BAA0094K. I hope it helps.
    Funny, now when I’m writing it, frame arrived! Hell yeah!!!

    So, owners, stiff and efficient or a bit flexi (comfy)?

    I’m building up my. Love shape of the frame, but not to keen on logo splashed all over it. Not very symmetrical either. Black mate heli tape done the job. Brushed Alu would be perfect, like on my Scandal. Laser etched logo was way more classy. All threads OK. Welding ok. Came with no bottle cage bolts and in plain brown box. No manuals, or any other paper work. I don’t mind all this as long, as frame cheap and strong. Will let you know more when build it up properly.

    Sorry for stupid questions here but been ages since I built up a modern bike.

    With the inset bottom race on the headset, how long steerer do you think I need for some forks? Headtube is 130mm and on old school I would add 40mm for headset and stem, but might not need so much on this?

    And second, says 135 x 10mm rear, is that the normal standard now? I always thought it was 135 x 9mm normal quick release. If I buy any quick release rear wheel assume that will be ok?

    Thanks a lot for any help. Sorry if this is really stupid!

    Hi coomber. Yes, head tube is 130mm. Headset top assembly, will take another 9mm. It’s integrated heaset, so both bearings and crown race are inside the frame. Only thing “sticking out”, will be top part of headset and this is only 9mm. So 130mm+ 9mm+ stem and spacers. That’s all you will need. I hope it helps.

    Finally got out on mine yesterday. Got the frame from Planet X on eBay and built it from that. Loved it. Better seat and pedals on the way though..

    If anyone wants a really cheap one in 18″, £559 full x5 bike in the Sheffield shop. Tryed my best to decide it was big enough, but I sadly need a 20″.
