    Recommended headset for threadless 1 1/8"

    I have an old Mongoose NX 7.3 (1999) still with the original Manitou SX-E fork.

    Now I have in my hand a used Manitou R7 MRD with 1 1/8" steerer tube.
    I would like to replace the headset at the same time but canīt figure out and decide what to buy. Current one is by bikepedia the 1 1/8" threadless Tioga TG.

    Any recommedations?

    You may have to measure the inner diameter of the head tube to make sure of the size you'd need. It could be a 34mm or a 30mm sized cup. You can also measure the current Tioga headset.

    The inside of the headset tube is exactly 34mm wide and 130mm tall, steerer tube is 192mm and stem is 49mm tall.

    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    Thanks for your help. I will go tomorrow to the local bike shops to see if they have any crane creeks in stock. Not sure but better if they have at least a quality headset that fits and is not too big then me ordering online and waiting a week or two.
