    Integrated Headset Frame - Zero Offset Headset

    Hi guys, just realized my new frame has an integrated headset but this idiot ordered an inset headset by accident... What are the chances that I'd be able to just pop the bearings in there with no issues? Thanks!

    Just check the bearings sizes and compare to the old bearings.
    Chances are you won't find any problems on just dropping the bearings in.

    I always confirm the ID, OD, height and inner and outer seat angles to be sure.
    Do the math.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever seen different angles? I heard they exist, but never seen any different than mine. At least not visually different.
