Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Integrated headset sizing...

Does anyone know what headsets are compatable with a specialized Langster S-works frame? Is there a way to measure the steering tube to find out? Specialized is surprisingly unhelpful for this information.

using precision calipers, measure the ID of the headtube. this will tell you which internal HS you need. i think theres 3 or 4 different ones out there right now, so measure carefully.

Internal headsets are not the same as integrated headsets.

To my knowledge (which, admittedly, may have holes), the only real difference in integrated headsets is the degree of slant of the bearing race and "cup" in the headtube, which is either 45 or 35 degrees, I think.
