Old Tricross Headset Replacement

Posted on
  • I'm refurbishing an old Tricross Singlecross. And I'm confused by the headset. I've pulled it apart and there are cups/races top and bottom. Do I just knock them out with a cup remover? I'm totally replacing the headset and need to remove all the gubbins for the powder coating.

  • Specialized headsets are a shitemare.

    Think you knock those cups out then will be able to fit an integrated style headset.

    @BrickMan knows the score I think?

  • Just went through the same process with a similar era spesh frame, it's a proprietary system called 'mindset'. Can be a bit tricky to get the tool to sit on the edge of the cup as there's a lip right before it but yeah you can just knock them out

  • Still stuck on finding a sealed bearing replacement though, I think they're 39mm but seem to be extra deep? I'm not very clued up on headset standards

  • Thanks @yokes and a quick Google yielded this.

    "…any pair of cartridge bearings which fit the Cane Creek standard (45/36, 41.2mm OD, 6.5mm high) will work..."

  • Hmm, the frame I'm working on isn't a tricross so may be a different size but 40mm bearings are too big
