My mate is trying to sort his headset on his giant xtc 840, Now I cant get to the bike and he has no idea about bike parts and has taken it to a local bike shop.

I want to make sure he doesnt get ripped off, they are talking about it has some sort of weird internal giant headset?? That will no doubt cost bucks!!

Anyone know about such things? Cant it be just knocked out and have a normal one fitted?

Cheers

Dave

These do use an integrated headset,nothing else will fit,but the headset only retails at £20.00.It is a standard Giant spare and is available most of the time. :D :D

I had one fitted in my LBS, for my Giant NRS1. It was about £20 fitted, maybe £22.
