BUT i was just wondering, would an integrated headtube accept a standard headset? such as a non - integrated cane creek or chris king? lemme know thanks. dont be a dick about it (:

You have to use an integrated bmx style headset, Also the thrasher is built for whats called a mid bottem bracket which is another part that is a bmx thing, not a track part. If your planning on getting a thrasher I would imagine youre already pretty heavy into tricktrack, so the investments twords bmx parts will be more worthwhile. If youre not into that, or not sure I would look at a MKE Bruiser or All City Dropout first, because those can be built for normal everyday riding much easier than the Thrasher.
