Hello all

I need to replace my headset bearings but I'm a little confused to sizing :oops: , can anyone confirm if I need 1" or 1.1/8"

My bike is a Focus Cayo 2007

And whilst Im here, whats your thoughts on; should I just ask my LBS to supply and fit or should I look about on the internet for a set, buy it and then it take to LBS???

May just answer my own question and give to LBS and ask him to work his magic :wink:

Thanks Shane

    I had the same problem, wasn't sure what to get. Eventually picked up an FSA Orbit CC Integrated Aheadset from Wiggle with 36/45 bearings

    Fits perfectly and several hundred miles with no problems 8)

    Incidentally - it is a doddle to fit, it just slips in to the cup - no tools needed

    Many thanks, will have a look at wiggle, I thought the actual fitting was a night-mare? But if straight forward I may attempt myself

    Thanks again

    Have to say I thought that I would need a headset press - no need, it just drops in to place. 8)
