They come up on the bay now and again, but currently there is only 1"1/4 for £25.00. im sure theres a member here with one they would part with though if you were to put an add in the wanted section. They are very good imho.

Thanks Carl. It might be a different version of the headset but it was suggesting you need a special tool for them or is that a load of old codswallop?

Mavic are far and away the best threaded MTB headset, Ive never had one come loose mid ride. Only special tool you need is a small (thinking 2.5mm?) Allen key

Personally I prefer the red rear triangle. Still the ONLY bike I regret selling!


Makes me wonder how many were actually made in man size.

I don't regret buying it. It rides very nicely indeed 8)


Hey Andrew! Its still the only frame I've seen in that size. If I ever see another... :wink:

Sounds good. If I find one I'll try and snap it up and give it a go. They do look sweet!

Neither of mine have ever needed adjustment either, although they can look a little bulky... :?
