Hello all, a bit of 'modernisation' advice for the headset of this cheapy frame I just picked up.....
I have bought this early 90s Peugeot frame for €20.
It would obviously have come with a threaded headset and fork, but all the headset hardware has been removed. The inside of the headtub is unreamed.
I would like to install an old 1" threadless fork, which I have at home in the bike cave. I am 99% sure it has a crown race on it and a star fangled nut installed.
Therefore I'd like some recommendations for a cheap threadless headset that would be easy to install, with no pressing of cups etc. if possible, and also a brief explanation of how the headset cups sit in, or on, the headtube as it doesn't have any reamed recess inside.
I have used the search function, and am still unsure, so would appreciate any specific advice for hardware and installation for this little project.
Thanks in advance
