Headsets

I am about to purchase a headset for this build im doing.

I measured the head tube and the sizes are:

outer diameter - 1 1/2 inches
inside - 1 3/8 inches

does this sound right?

what size headset do i need? 1 1/8 inch threadless yes?

My wheels arrived today, fitted the rear, with the stunt pegs. Its starting to look good. I am awaiting my forks, seat clamp and chain.

Also, anyone know where i can get some nice blue street tyres?

cheers people.

If the frame is newer, than, say, 1995, you'll need a 1-1/8" headset. Or, if you don't know, you could simply take it to the bikeshop to see what you need. Wouldn't that be rather intelligent?

Beerman, go easy on this guy. He seems to be a total noob, rather than a total idiot. Set him straight from the word go, and he should end up being less annoying than the average fuzzy, girlpants wearing queens we see on here.

Pablo, get the 1 1/8" headset. If it doesn't fit, look for a new frame, and don't waste your time and money on that old school dog. If it fits, you're set.
