    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,
