Headsets Headsets are the part of the bike that fit through the head
tube and allow you to turn your front wheel using bearings. There are
two main types; threaded and ahead. Threaded headsets are designed to
work with the older quill stems. The forks screw straight into the
headset inside the headtube and the stem attaches straight into the
headset. Most manufacturers no longer produce bikes that are compatible
with these headsets, but we make sure that we still stock enough to
service the bikes that still run with threaded headsets. The second type
that nearly all bikes use these days are ahead headsets which come in
many forms. Internal & External Headsets The main distinction is
whether the bearings are external, where most of the headset is visible
or are internal and hidden, where the workings of the headset are found
within the headtube in the frame. We stock all kinds of headsets to fit
all types and sizes of bike from the broad range that companies such as
FSA offer, to the exclusivity that only companies like Chris King can
