I'm torn as to what to put it on. I have the rest of my 7400 on my 84 raleigh, but i'm pretty content with the stronglight headset that's on there now. I may end up throwing it on there though. It'll probably sit on the shelf a while till I figure it out.
The story behind it goes like this.
I had a customer come in the shop with an older trek carbon frame. Pretty cool frame, I forget the model but unlike the one I have, his had the carbon stays too. Anyways, he had taken it to 2 places including a chain store's bike department (that will remain nameless) and another actual bike shop (which he didnt name) to get the bottom bracket and headset removed. After those 2 places couldn't do what he wanted he came to us.
After I popped them both out with great ease, I asked him what he was gonna do with that headset and he was like "You want it?" to which I replied "Sure" so he gave it to me. Made my day, I love this old stuff.
sad that the other places could not remove a headset. however, it is good for you!
probably just made a customer for life and who knows who he will tell. plus, you scored a nice headset.
i am a little surprised that the other shop could not get it done.... okay not a little, i am shocked
