About this deal
Thankfully, there is a standard of sorts for headsets to help navigate you through the array of parts, and – moreover – the names of parts on the market.
It was once all so simple with only a few headset standards on the market. These days… well, it’s not quite that simple. Velo OrangeA touch of artistry can work wonders. The Bicycle Bookend isn’t just a functional item but an artistic statement that brings together their love for literature and cycling. Then there’s the timeless charm of the Leather Bike Handle, elevating the aesthetics of even the most sophisticated bike models. A cyclist may have all the gadgets, but the Apple Airtag paired with the Airtag Bike Mount introduces them to the realm of smart tech, ensuring they always know where their beloved bike is. What the ABEC standard qualifies is bore diameter (an acceptable variation of the size of the inner bearing hole), parallelism (width variation), and the radial raceway run-out (variations in the groove in which the balls sit). They complement the radial and side-force loads exerted with the rotating components of a bike, but require extreme tolerances in mating bores to accomplish a precise fit and rolling performance.
Defining the SHIS code will tell you what kind of headset will fit the bike, but there are also some additional choices you can make. Depending on the length of the quill, you can adjust the height of the stem easily by sliding it further up or down inside the steerer and fixing it in the correct position. For most quality bearings, including every bearing Enduro Bearings makes, Panaccione assures “with a small blade and a careful hand, seals can be removed from the inside race for servicing“. What are bearings made from?
What is an external threadless headset?
Radial bearings are the most common as they are cheaper. They attempt to carry the load in a truly radial direction, which is vertical in terms of hubs, cranks, suspension pivots or derailleur pulleys. An integrated headset does away with the bearing cups, with the bearings dropped into pre-shaped seats at either end of the head tube – the head tube takes over the duties of the bearing cups. Take the Bicycle Tie, for instance. It’s more than just a fashionable accessory. It’s a subtle nod to their cycling passion, making a statement in every boardroom or social gathering they attend. For the bibliophiles who cherish their reading time as much as their cycling hours, the Bicycle Bookend provides a dual purpose, holding their favorite reads while showcasing their love for bikes. And what better way to toast to memorable moments than with the Bicycle Beer Glasses? Every sip becomes a reminder of the joy of riding.
