Hi,
I would like to replace my 1 inch YST HP- "226N" headset with a new one.
Unfortunately, I haven't the chance to measure so I was wondering which treaded headset I can buy to replace this.

Thanks for your help.

How much do you want to spend?
You can find Ritchey threaded 1" headsets on Ebay. That's what I used prior to getting a threadless suspension fork. I had it on there for years with no issues.

If you want new, Chris King also has one, but that's going to be a little more spendy!

Velo Orange makes one as well that looks pretty nice.

You can also find old Shimano XT or Suntour XC Pro headsets in 1" on Ebay. Some of the Suntour's are NOS Grease Guard sets, and are getting expensive also.

Make sure you get one with the correct size of crown race. See here for info: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/cribsheet-headsets.html.
