Hello everyone.

In my haste to find a replacement headset for my Fat Chance Wicked, I made the mistake of buying a French Shimano XT headset. I basically just need the bottom cup replaced, so can someone chime in on what parts I can make use of? I am hoping that I can use everything except the two top threaded parts and the washer and can reuse what I have from my old headset that's still in decent shape.

Hopefully I didn't totally make a waste of this purchase!

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

- Matt

Is it 1" ?

If so, the diameter of the cups and crown race 'could' be a little different to your frame / forks ...

Is it just the crown race that is a different size?
