Navigating the Minefield

“…headsets are a bit of a minefield! Integrated, integral, reducers, dimensions and types all contribute to confusing the situation. Don’t panic! We have now made top and bottom cups available separately allowing our headsets to fit almost any frame and fork combination. Hopefully this brochure will help you through choosing the right headset for your bike.” – Hope Technology.

Compatability

All our frames are designed to take an external cup headset but we use both straight and tapered head tubes in our frames. To help you make the right selection for your frame, you can refer to the compatibility chart below:
