Interesting that mine (original Vit T) has 1 1/8" headset and is '92 :shock:


So has mine - I asked about this and was told a few of the earlier original frames (4 maybe?) were made with 1 1/8" headsets.


Interesting again, why on earth did they make circa 4? The cynic in me says that these 4 or so were just made to the wrong spec. As always i suspect I am wrong.

Woah, first time I think I've ever been right! Cause for a celebration this evening I reckon.

Actually having a 1 1/8th headtube must be handy for finding forks, headsets and the like.
