It's got a 1 1/8" Kona Impact headset (non-ahead) bottom race loose, top race caged. I've managed to drop the container i was dropping the bearings into so whilst i'm replacing the loose bearings i thought i may as well replace the caged ones. Can i get a cage to replace the bottom loose bearings? Any help appreciated.

Just put loose in, pack it full and take two out.

I think top is 5/32" diameter and bottom is 1/4" diameter.
But check with others or measure them. (22 top, 15 bottom ring a bell in their cages?)

This is the black one?
