Hello folks,need advice.

Was servicing my Kona Paddy Wagon (2013) only to discover headset was badly rusted and had some bearings missing.Can anyone advise/recommend a replacement for the TH855 that came with the bike?

    Standard inch and eighth or 1.125" aheadset - huge choice. If you can stretch to an FSA Orbit Xtreme Pro it'll probably outlast the frame. Also getting great service from a Mowa headset from Taiwan (ebay) on my fatbike which has survived 2 filthy winters and a trip to the arctic.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Thanks Monty,

    Will definitely go for the Orbit because of it's lifespan,bought cheap bought twice a lot of times so thanks again.
