Been pondering exactly what to do with my C16r (bought new circa 1997 with first ever loan) which I've been neglecting since I bough an Orange G3 a year or so ago (never been happier), so I was thrilled to find retrobike.co.uk and loads of other C16r owners.
I thought I'd remove the Pace RC-36 EVO forks, and put on the original set (just to experience the original ride), and think I have most of the headset parts but definitely missing the balls and races (see attached image).
Grazing through the various posts I saw someone recommend a "great cheap 1" headset would be [from] Chain Reaction Cycles who will take a tenner off your hands for a nice Ritchey Logic one".
Like many I'm learning as I go so any advice on exactly how to get the forks back on the bike would be very much appreciated - is the Ritchey Logic one what I need?
Thanks in advance,
(sorry if I've posted in the wrong section, new to the forum)
I run a couple of Oranges with the 1" Ritchey Headset, It's very good value for money, or if you wanted to put a wanted Ad up on the forum you may be able to get a decent used STX, LX Headset for similar money. Look forward to hearing more about your C16R and its rebuild.
