I purchased a new 17" model last year & never have had a chance to ride it until today. After just a few minutes of riding on the paved roads at the local college to try out the fixed gear side of the hub, the headset started clunking with a ton of play. Pulled it apart and found the top bearing of the headset was missing & must have never been installed. The bottom bearing is there & so is every other part of the headset except for the top bearing. The bottom cup of the headset has etched "mfg by th industries for cane creek". I can't find any of my paperwork where I bought it (ebay) or find any info about the outcast 26 on the motobecane website. If anyone has headset info for this model I could sure use it. There is no Motobecane dealer for 100 miles. I went to "bike tools etc" website but I don't know enough to figure out what to order except that the fork has a 1 1/8" steerer tube and the bottom retainer style bearing has (20) 5/32" balls in it. I don't how how to determine which new headset to buy or what bearing I need. Help Please ! ! !
