Headset easy to dismantle ?

Luxembourg, le 05 novembre

Hi,

I've just ordered a Xootr and I am considering upgrading it to make it easier to dismantle and fit in a small suitcase.
I'll use a shimano 105 Bottom Bracket (I have one on my BF and it take 15 seconds to remove the bottom bracket).
But since the Xootr has a bigger frame than my BF, it would be nice if I could dismantle the headset as well.
Does anyone know a headset easy to remove and put back again (without the need of heavy tools).

Thanks for reading my post.

Eric

Check out this Diatech headset:

It can be easily taken apart with a stabdard allen wrench...it's what's on my Raleigh Twenty,

sorry to threadjack,but I miss luxembourg, studied abroad at Miami U's chateau in Differdange and lived in Bettembourg. That is such a beautiful little country with the best Rieslings.
