    Haro V1- question on headset



    I just scored a V1 frame, size XL (I'm 6'3") for $13.50 on Ebay . Anyway - want to make this a lightweight commuter type bike.

    I can't tell from the pics but it looks like an integrated or semi-integrated headset. I'm also semi-convinced that the bottom has a regular style headset cup - just can't tell from the pictures. Any recommendations?

    Also - what travel will this bike take and still handle well? 100mm?

    Thanks.

    Sorry...I have been super slammed at work.

    I'll actually need to look into that frame. Did you buy it from someone here in the US? We "license" some of our lower-end bikes to our distributor in Australia and this actually looks like one of the bikes they produce. I'll have to show this to a couple people to make sure I get you the correct info.

    OK, did a little research on this. That's a 2004 V1 frame, not one of our Australian licensee frames.

    I does look like in the photo that it takes an integrated HS, but according to the spec, it takes a standard threadless headset. Photo just might distort it somehow.

    The stock V1 was spec'd with a 63mm fork. You could probably safely go up to an 80mm fork. 100mm might be pushing it a bit; it might really knock your geometry out of whack. I'd stick with 80mm and no more.

    Regardless, good find and great eBay score. Can't beat the price! With the right parts, these frames can be built up into nice little XC bikes.

    thanks. It is a standard threadless. It's actually, a nice, lightweight frame and for the $13.50 I paid for it - a good bargain.

    One thing I could not find online is the seat post clamp size.
