    headset - non integrated and integrated

    Hi

    is the difference between an integrated and non integrated headset for a fork that the bearings are mounted on the fork itself?
    if this is correct, what kind of headset do I need will it fit with my regular shimano dura-ace headset?

    thanks for any info

    You will need to get the correct headset based on what type of headtube your bike has. If it is integrated you will notice that the bottom portion of the headset is recessed into a flared lip in the headtube. If it is non-integrated you will be able to see the bottom cup clearly.
