    1" headset means head tube is also 1"

    Hi. I'm selling a 1996 Cannondale M200 SE 16" frame. It has a 1" Tange-Seiki SE-II headset. Does that mean the head tube size is also 1"? Thanks

    No, it does not. It means that the steerer tube is 1" in diameter. The steerer is the part the stem goes into.

    It means that the headtube size is... Whatever size a 1" headset and 1" fork fit into. You cannot put a 1 1/8" fork/ headset in that frame, if that is what you are asking.
