I have a Deda Nero Corsa (Ribble) frame where the headset bearings have gone. Its an internal headset and my local bike shop says he can't get any bearings for it and can't change the headset as its internal. Am I screwed here? Anyone else have experience of a Ribble or deccadi frames like this, can't believe I am looking at a whole new frameset for the sake of some bearings? :cry:
