I've purchased a lovely (immaculate) Raleigh Dune Dancer frame (from Racin'snake) and I want to replace the headset bearings.

It's a Tioga Avenger headset, 1 1/8th Threaded.

I know on Ebay you can get replacement bearing cages, but what size would I need.

Apologies if dumb-ass question.. :D

I've just replaced the headset on my Diamond Back Axis with a Tioga Avenger Headset, it's 1 1/8" Threaded and was from eBay http://bit.ly/13dSaBX great headset in my opinion. Buy one and what you don't use is handy to hold onto for spares :) simples

If its balls in cages, bin the cages and use loose balls - just buy the same size :D
