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)

Zero stack headset, alloy fork installation question

I just pulled the trigger on this...



I am going to be out of town with a limited amount of tools and I want to anticipate any assembly issues that may arise.

I am curious about the headset installation process; mainly the absence of a star nut or it being replaced by something else?

And lastly, will I need to "press" any parts from the zero stack headset in like a normal headset, or will it sit in place without any force needed?
