    Ritchey also made an all black-headset - although their modern headsets are a mix of silver and black.

    Somebody else made a black one but if you think the XT ones are expensive, I don't need to tell you who they are.

    Gotta pay for fancy. The Shimano ones look fancy with the scallops and all.

    The scalloped 600 headsets look fancy on an '80s bike, but out of place on a '90s frame.

    so fickle, colker. 54 minutes later are you're changing your whole bike for the headset.

    Hi Ricthey Logic looks pretty good

    choices for 1in black threaded headset?-009.jpg

    Probably on the cheap side but I think they work well.

    Found a Campy record, silver, at a good price. Anyone's experience w/ it? It's the late 90s aluminum one. Looks pretty.

    Can't go wrong with Record. But I thought that you wanted black.

    What kind of bike? Is it a real classic one. I would never build a Ritchey, for example, with Campy. For me a no go. On The other hand a Fat Chance with Campy, why not. But, maybe, i am too Classic.

    I found it locally.. wouldn't like to play w/ ebay and paypal right now. I am coming from an ugly chrome tange so a satin record is still an upgrade.

    On an early '80s Ritchey a Campy Nuovo Record headset looks perfect.
