Remember reading that they were initially supplied with a drilled out shimano 105 headset. of course age may be getting the better of me...

andy no the xc pro headset is not useless you have to modify it by re moving the threads on the top race[ you do not use the lock nut] so as its a nice push fit down your steerer tube do not go any further than the route of the threads or it will be to loose. You then machine a recess on the top race top so as to accept the stop part on the steerer tube some 1mm to 1.5mm deep go easy on the dia of the recess as the stop ring is used to centralise the steerer to headset if you look at the ring it has a small radius so better to be under than over . Hope you under stand this drop me a PM if you don't Cheers.

Cheers retroking#1 for the info, I’ve also got a 105 waiting to be modified.

I'm just waiting to get my stem back from Dave Yates, why do these things always take so long.
