15/18 Are just parts of the hope hed doctor rather than the actual headset

But available from HopeGB?
The outers are all there, it's just the gumf that goes inside the steerer I need. And the top bolt.

Might be easier just to flog the headset for parts and buy another.
I'm not fussed about Hope. Would be happy with an FSA Pig.

Get the head doctor..? That will act as the top cap, has a bolt and replaces the SFN/expanding plug.

Expensive headset, keep it! :D (I'm about to go buy a new one..)

It's ok. Headset crisis over. Cyfa said to try it with a starnut and it works fine. Will probably need a stem cap bolt with a slightly larger diameter head, but there's plenty of engineeringy/bolts manufacturers round here so I'm not worried.

Now just to find a Judy DH! :roll:

What do you mean stem cap?
The hope bolts that are specific to the hope topcaps also fit SFN
:wink: :(

Nooooo, you can't put a Judy DHO on the Lobo??? :?
Hold out for some early Boxxers! or Super T seem to fit the frame quite nice.

Good news on the headset:D
