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)

Giant bowery 98' new headset


I know this has been discussed on many forums all over the place, however there never really seems to be an answer anywhere. I have customized my 2008 bowery so it is all polished aluminium with red anodised accessories ( hubs, bolts, brake caliper, chain ring bolts etc.).

It has now come time to replace the headset as the bearings are giving up. I want to replace the the whole set hopefully either in red or silver. Does anyone know of any brands that make a headset that will fit this frame. The only one i can find is this one in black.

its no good as it only comes in black. any ideas ??? i dont want to spend a fortune.

Do you know what the model number is for the existing headset? If you can find specs for the existing headset you should be able to match it up with manufacturers offerings.
