Headset reinforcement bands

Are they needed for "fillet/weld" head tubes, or only the thin walled "lug" H.T.s?

No answer, but I kind of like the looks of them in either case.

they aren't generally used on the thick head tube stock. If you did want to use them you'd have to fabricate/modify them yourself

Thanks Dopleposten. Whoops- only once today
Hmmm... you`ve got a point too, Mudboy. It`s still worth thinking about.
