- Which Hope pic n mix headset do I need?
Headsets overwhelm me.
This is my bike:
It has a purple Hope headset at the bottom. I want a red one as the anodising everywhere else is red and it’s the ‘last’ thing to finish on it.
But I can’t work out which one to buy.Posted 1 year ago
Can you help?
2F I think.Posted 1 year ago
I think I disagree, I think I’d buy a type B ZS44/30 (semi intergrated)
I think you want a standard 44mm internal diameter, and the type F is an internal 49mmPosted 1 year ago
From the spec, it looks like it has a 44mm headtube. Therefore you need a ‘2’ upper and ‘H’ lower, assuming your fork is tapered.Posted 1 year ago
I was just going off the spec in that link. 1 1/8″ internal, 1.5″ external.
Problem is, they tell you what headset works, rather than what the head tube is.
Worth a look at the tech documents on the Hope web site.Posted 1 year ago
Yeah looks like a 44 ID headtube.Posted 1 year ago
I asked a question on the chain reaction QA section, they replied a few days later and were spot on
Seconds later I was 80£ lighter but the proud owner of a nice orange headset for my Major JakePosted 1 year ago
Which one was it in the end, out of curiosity?Posted 1 year ago
So, more research
Using the SHIS: https://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/standardized-headset-identification-system
The headset on it is an:
EC: External Cup
44: Bore Diameter
40: Crown Race Diameter
Which would be an H headset from Hope: http://www.hopetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/HOPE-HEADSET-FITTING-CHART.pdf
It seems a B could work too as it is a ZS 44/40, where ZS is Zero Stack – I guess it would lower the stack height a little.Posted 1 year ago
B won’t work as it’s for a 1 1/8 fork.Posted 1 year ago
Took my H cup to the bike shop to get fitted. It’s wrong, you need an F for these bikes….Posted 1 year ago
