There's not a massive choice out there in this size, any suggestions for a 1" Aheadset around the £30-40 mark at all? It's for my P7.

Cheers, Matty :D

Woodmans 'Double Bearing System'
Extra set of roller bearings at the base

Google Woodman DBS,
Probably the only headset you will need

Might be a bit pricey but thanks - available in UK or just the US?

I have a Campagnolo Record headset on my Orange Prestige, should be in your price range?

And I recently got one of these... http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=94963 ...for my road bike, looks to be decent enough and should last a few years (by which time I will probably have moved on to another road bike anyways! :facepalm: ).
And the difference in weight between the Campag and The Cane Creek headset is literally only a few grams :wink:

Greyville are the importers, DOT Bikes are stockists.
If all sold out let me know, £29 posted.

Campagnolo Record road is bombproof and has wee grease ports on the lower race for maintenance without dismantling.

I got a Cane Creek S2 for my Buck Shaver. £40 I think it was.

In silver 1" flavour I got it from eBay....hard to find in the usual shops. Black is easier to find I think!
