    Good to be clear that this will work only with American standard 1" which is different than the headtubes on our old mountain bikes and road bikes. Pretty much cruisers and BMX only. If you don't want to fuss with finding a combination of mix and match headsets that will work, you can buy one from these guys (not me but he does post here from time to time).

    Or you could ream out the head tube to fit a standard 1 1/8" threadless headset like my LBS did for my Schwinn Klunker build.

    Or do what Chris King does and braze the cups of a 1 1/8 headset to the outside of the head tube of a 1" headtube.
    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread

    When did the 1-1/8" become the standard?

    Might work for steel cups on a steel frame, not so much for other materials. Difficulty would be getting the cups perfectly aligned prior to brazing in place. Subsequent headset replacements would be bit of a problem...

    Transition was gradually adopted during the early to mid-1990's, approx same timeframe as MTB went from quill stems to aheadset stems so there were very few 1-1/8" quills or 1" MTB aheadset stems.
