New Bike? Integrated Headset Questions
I am looking for a new bike and really like the thought of a single speed Cross Bike. More specifically the 07 Bianchi "ROGER". Other than the gearing being a little too much for me, the only other thing I am not sure of is the integrated headset design of this frame.
I've been reading this thread New Frrame/Integrated Headset
and have read the supplied Chris King Article on these headsets. So my concern is this, Do Clydes stress these headsets even more than they should be and is this a weak point in frame design? It looks like there is no good fix if you get a bad one of these frames or damage a frame.
Any of us ever have a problem like this?
