what are my 1" headset options?

well, i have a threaded carbon fork that was on the serotta. i was going to use that, but maybe i’ll leave it on that bike instead

Yeah. :bear:

yeah leave it on the serotta or take the headset from the serotta…

If you can still find them the Campy Chorus was a pretty hot headset. I think they stopped making them in threaded a couple years ago.

sub question, does the neon bike want a blue CK instead.

I think you have to ask yourself if you are going to keep these frames long enough to make it worth while to dump the cash for a CK. You usually don’t recoup it on resale.

i was under the impression one didn’t sell chris king headsets, one just moves them from bike to bike

Maybe but I think a frame with a headset, any headset, is probably easier to sell than one without. Especially one with a 1" threaded… what are your realistic chances of needing it again?

nashbar fork and s-2 then it looks like

That headset has been in stock once in the last 4 months, and they only had 5. It sold out in less than 1 hour.

Are you going for a classic or modern build? If classic, go chrome and threaded. Modern, go threadless and carbon.

The Cane Creek S-2 is a fine headset. I’ve been using the same one on a cross bike for two seasons without any maintenance and there is nothing wrong with it.

I’m just here to reiterate. Go carbon and threadless, CC S2 is nice. I did the same thing on my Cannondale (went from threaded to threadless, steel fork to carbon, but with a C2 headset I got off someone on tarck for cheap).

I just remembered: the Stronglight A9 is considered one of the best threaded 1" headsets out there. I have one (not for sale) and the needle bearings are nice. Really well designed.
