Built-in Headset detail December 2, 2011

I’ve mentioned the built-in headset race on our Fairdale Parser forks once before. On a recent trip by a bike shop I saw they had built up one of our frame kits and tried to force the headset race on to the forks. Essentially built-in races are pretty standard in the BMX world, but not so much in the road world. I guess we caught the shop off guard with how convenient this little feature is. This tiny bit of machining allows us to simplify bike assembly more then most people are used to.
