Does anyone know what size headset I need for my Orange Alu E2 restoration?
A thorough trawl of the internet has failed to deliver the answer and the Orange website doesn't allow random queries of this nature any more.
Thanks in advance :)

E3 was 1", I think the E2 was sort of a prototype E3 but could be wrong , have you tried a tape measure as it'll be easy to measure , if it's an O2 it'll be 1/1/8".

I want to start searching for a new headset before the old one is removed so I can’t readily measure the headtube.

Mine was 1", but I have heard of one with 1 1/8", so you may have to meaure it.

My steerer tube is definitely 1” so I am fairly sure that the headset will be 1 1/8” but I obviously want to be 100% certain :)
