headsets?
« on: September 07, 2011, 01:23:42 PM »
So when are more MTB companies going to get onboard with integrated headsets? Or do you think they should? I know Black Market is using them but....how many of you have had a bike with integrated?   For me they have been terrific and only a fraction of the cost of good non-integrated ones.

I think it is the way to go, lower stack height, just looks cleaner.

I believe they are already there Noble.

Mine headset is integrated.

I see several bikes in the shop even entry level ones with integrated headsets.

And I agree with scott it does look cleaner.

not a 100% of a integrated fan... if you are talking about the style with no cups just a race built in to the frame and bearing that sit in there...

My Dartmoor Hornet is using integrated/semi-integrated and it works really well and looks clean.
