Hi David,

A Record headset would more than do! It's the one that was fitted to the Team bikes, not to the Equipe so will be a MUCH higher quality. One thing to watch out for - make sure it is "ENGLISH" threaded, not "Italian", "Swiss" or "French" - otherwise the top bearing cover, spacer & top collar nut will not fit.

Amazingly small world! Is the bike in Sittingbourne? If so, I might be able to pop over some time and offer unwanted advice & assistance! Appreciate that you're in Mexico - look out for a cheap steel Colnago frame while you're out there!

Detling Hill's still a killer on the knees, but at least there's a brilliant smooth descent down to Key Street - Hollingbourne Hill is even more evil, with only flat lanes as a reward! Used to be a lot better on the lanes but now they are full of housewives driving 4X4 poser wagons, talking on the mobile with one hand, setting their Sat-nav with the other and looking round at their kid's in the back - women can multi-task but sometimes forget to drive! Give me the race track A249 any day, at least you can see them coming!

I'd post my e-mail address or phone numbers but don't think that's very wise, but hope u can PM soon.

Best wishes,

Stuart
