    Headset question

    Does anyone know how high quality the headsets are that come on specialized bikes. The ones that don't list a name they just say 1 and 1/8. Also does anyone have a weight for them.

    I don't believe that all models come with the same type headset. Most of them are elcheapos though. Mine came with a Aheadset, probably made by Cane Creek. I promptly changed it out with a Cane Creek Solos.

    That's the exact same bike I have, so your headset is probably also a Aheadset. I was told by a few different bike mechanics that the headset is fine and just to use it until you wear it out and then buy something nicer. Of course as I said earlier I promptly changed mine out for a Cane Creek Solos anyway.

    Most of their headsets are made by FSA using a cane creek logo. Most of the bikes come with mid-range headsets.
