Hi Yarin - thanks for your question. Yes, this headset will work just fine with those forks, but remember not to use the crown race. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi, is this an EC34 head set, wanting to fit it to a Rockman Slate 1 frame, thanks

Hi Andy - This is a standard 1 1/8" external cup headset, so it would be classified as an EC34 headset. Thanks, Mark

Corrado Backie

Hey, just wondering if it would be possible to run a brake cable through the steering tube with this headset? Thanks in advance.

Hi Corrado - To run your front brake cable through your steerer tube, it will depend on the top cap you use rather than the headset. If you use something like the Gusset Hollow Star Nut Kit or the Inspired Headlock V2, you'll be able to route it that way should you wish. Thanks, Mark

ref French ID Headset. I am wanting a headset to replace a Shimano 105 headset from the 1985-1990 era. The forks are threaded 1 inch and the stack height is 32mm. I have the unit in bits if you need any more measurements to confirm that this French ID unit will interchange. Thank you.

Hi Trevor - Unfortunately, all of our headsets are for 1 1/8" steerer tube forks, so wouldn't be compatible with yours. Sorry about this!

Hello tarty bikes would this fit a Inspired flow?

Hi Michael - This headset should fit the Flow fine. Thanks, Mark


Hi Wil this fit the inspired flow 24 ',wil it require at specific tool? Is the bearings included? Thanks Mj

Hi MJ - This headset would fit the pre-2018 version of the Flow fine (if you have external cups on your frame, rather than the internal cups as seen on the very latest Flow bikes). Ideally you would need a headset press and a crown race setting tool to fit the headset, although it is possible to do it without if you are very careful and have some tools at home. If you'd like specific fitting tips, feel free to send us an e-mail or give us a call and go through to the Technical line. Thanks, Mark

Hi, would this headset be compatible with my rockman Austin v3 and echo urban formed. Thanks

Posted by joe olson on 03/05/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 04/05/2017

Hi Joe - This headset would be compatible with both the headset and your forks (depending on whether the Urbans you're using have an integrated crown race or not, you may or may not need to use the supplied crown race). Thanks, Mark

For such a cheap headset, this is incredible. Installing it was a breeze thanks to a bench vice to do the cups, then drop in the bearings and tighten! Simple. Although getting the race on the forks seemed difficult as it was so tight, I just used the compression cap to force it down into place. The bearings are surprisingly good and after running for a few months, i have not had a single issue. Still running like new. Highly recommend, I don't think you can get much better at this price point. Cheers tartybikes!

Hi Archie - Thanks for your review, I'm glad you like your headset. Regarding the crown race, you can either use a crown race setting tool, or alternatively use an adjustable spanner and a hammer. If you open the spanner up and lay it flat on top of the top edge of the race, you can tap the spanner with a hammer and that will push the race down as a result of spreading the load over two sides of the race rather than just one side. It helps makes sure that the crown race is seated correctly as if you just use the top cap you can sometimes pull the star nut out of your forks which isn't ideal!
