    Intergrated Headset ??

    I just took apart my intergrated headset on my NRS 2 to do a quick cleaning. Whoa was it dirty!!! Anyways, I was wondering if I should grease the bearings and the race? Also, for future reference, where can I find the bearings if they ever go bad on me. thxs

    The headset isn't actually integrated on giant bikes. Its a zero-stack, or internal headset. Integrated headsets use the frame as bearing cups (very bad).
    Cane Creek makes a replacement headset- ZS-2 or ZS-6. Check em out if your interested in replacement.

    ...as does FSA (Orbit Z series) and WTB (Innerpeace).

    I smear a little grease around the cup for the bearing to sit in. Remember, grease not only lubricates, but protects against moisture & dirt and works to silence any noise that might eminate from the bearing/cup interface.
