Help Repair - Ritchey Logic Headset

I have what I belive to be this headset. It was on the used FUJI frame I bought.

http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.as...m=111&AbsPos=1

Both ball bearing cages have been eaten away and are no longer usable. I am just trying to find two new ones so that I can put this excellent heaset back into action. Does anyone have some matching spares lying around or know a site where I can buy these?

Thank You

Get rid of the cages and just use loose ball bearings. Get new bearings, however. You should be able to find the correct size (probably 5/32") just about anywhere. If you insist on caged bearings, you can get them here or you should be able to pick them up at your local bike shop. Buy local because these aren't worth spending shipping on.

That is just a cheap low end headset, nothing wrong with it, but for low end kit it can be just as cheap to replace with new than repair.

Replacing with loose BB's is a good option, but if any of the races are pitted or damaged, it would be cheaper in the long run to replace with a new one.
