Should I buy a new headset?
I have a new frame and I also have a bike that will be used as a donor for almost all of the components needed. I’ve owned the donor bike since new, most of the wear items are in very good condition due to recent upgrades.
The Cane Creek headset is 6 years old and has about 15,000 miles of year around use. It has never given me any problems and seems to be in very good condition
Should I install it in the new frame, or replace it?
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
