    The Following Headtube/Headset Question

    Not an experienced bike mechanic by any means, and looking for some help with this thing...trying to install the headset in a new Following frame.

    The top of the head tube has a cup pressed into it for the upper headset bearing to sit in, but the bottom of the head tube has no such thing...there is about 5mm play all around the bearing. It seems like the frame is missing a pressed in cup in which the lower bearing should sit.

    Is this correct? If so, and it should have been installed by the factory, can these be pressed in after the fact, or is it something that must be done during manufacturing? Thanks for any help!

    Yes you are missing the lower headset cup. Mine came with it already installed but it can be pressed in with a headset press just like on any other frame.
