Headset for Bianchi C2C?

Postby blackstick » Sat Nov 03, 2012 13:35 pm

I have a 2010 model that I need a new headset replacement.

I bought twice a 1 1/8 headset and both of them don't fit.

Anyone know exactly which and where to get one ?

The ones on the bike is a ball bearing type.

read the info on Parktools and ID what type of headset you have fitted.

The 2010 catalogue (found here http://www.bianchi.com/Global/Bikes/Bik ... chive.aspx ) will tell you in the Spec section at the back what is fitted.

You don't say which model from the C2C range. If it's an Infinito, they've been fitting FSA Orbit CE Plus for the past few years. the spec for those headsets is here - http://www.fullspeedahead.com/products/ ... it-CE-Plus

It looks as if Bianchi use FSA headsets for much of the C2C range so you can navigate around the FSA site to find the right one for your model. These are the direct links for:

ZS4 Custom (used on several ViaNirone models) http://www.fullspeedahead.com/products/281/ZS-4

On some Via Nirone models they use a VPA42E made by VP Components for Cane Creek. It looks like this:

Thanks mate, it helps a lot, the one I've got is the VPA42E, I might see if I can get the ZS4.
