Am I correct in thinking that as long as I keep the entire lower and upper headset assemblies (bearings, races etc) together I can happily mix and match headset set cups?

Not that I think it makes a difference but this is ahead.

The headset I have at the moment has a very loose fork crown race and whilst shimming is an option I want to consider others.

Done it myself to give a big lower race in a threaded headset for the tandem.

Yes.

Or just buy an FSA fat pig headset, cheap and robust.

I've just got one of these. Seems like good value, especially with needle bearings and a lockable lock nut. And I've always loved Odyssey stuff.

Will clash horribly with the ano red bits on the rest of my bike, but what the hell... the Tioga Avenger I ordered from USA hasn't turned up, and the build must go on...
