- Which 1 1/8″ ec34 angle set slackset headset?
Looking to slacken off my old 26″ bike a little.
It has an old style non integrated 1 1/8″ external headset (EC34?)
Seems on one don’t do the slackset anymore.
I found the the works components – anyone got experience? Any others with more slack (those are 1 degree).
They are a bit pricey for an old bike really, but they are impossible to find second hand.
Is it worth bothering with? Cheers.Posted 6 months agodocrobsterMember
Yes 1 degree is the most you’ll get, and there are different versions for different headtube lengths. I had a works component one about 6 years ago which I think was the only option for straight 34mm id head tubes at the time. It was a good bit of kit though. Sold the frame it’s it still in.Posted 6 months ago
Thanks, I found a guy on pinkbike who custom machines them. I send my head tube length and he makes a 1.5 degree angleset for less than the Works headset.
Tempted to give it a go. Or do I flog the flux frame, wheels and forks and try and score something with modern geo.Posted 6 months ago
