    Maybe it was pressed in without the adaptor to fit inside it. Like,just the base section of Park press on it’s own and a combination of too little material in one area.Who knowzzz.

    One for all those people who bosh their headsets in with a 4×2.

    Cool! My Hope has the thinnest sidewalls I’ve ever seen on a headset, it’s of a similiar vintage… Though not so much that I’ve ever thought of it as an issue.

    The front end on my MTBhad been creaking for a while, I’d stripped it and found nothing. Got an event on Saturday so thought I’d have another look. 😯

    Somehow I’ve managed to split the bottom cup horizontally. Any ideas how?

    Its a Hope headset, second bike its been in and about 6 years old – bearing was fine 🙂
