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)

Headset terminology?

Can someone explain headset terminology to me? I have a frame and a fork and I have no idea what kind of headset i need. I copied a description off a web site. What does this stuff mean?

- 1.0 Threaded (my fork is threaded and 1" diameter to the outside of the threads, so I'm assuming that's what this is)
- 30.3mm Stack Height
- 30.2mm Cup Size / 26.4mm Race

Thanks for your patience and help...
