What headset : Croix De Fer

Postby bendertherobot » Thu Mar 28, 2013 18:30 pm

Bewildered.

Here's the bike:

Which apparently has (mine was last year but should be same)

VP-A51A 1-1/8" Threadless

So, what replacement do I need?

HINT: A nice blingy red one please.

I fitted campagnolo record threadless 1 and 1/8 inch 3 years ago and I forgot about it...

Any regular 1.125" headset will do. If you want red, look at Hope, or if your budget doesn't stretch that far, FSA Orbit MX are OK for the money.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

Easy to fit? All three were on the list (ie including the king)
