Riding with a rattling or creaking headset can cause severe damage to your bike's frame, not to mention the problems you'll have trying to control your bike, especially at speed or over rough terrain. Purchasing a smooth, quality headset will hugely improve your bike's handling. It could also prevent severe damage to your bike's frame, potentially saving you a lot of money further down the line.
When purchasing a new bike headset, you must identify whether you need an internal, external or integrated one. There are also different sizes, with 1 1/8" being the most common. We stock a selection of traditional and tapered headsets, featuring the latter heavily on road and mountain bikes. You can also choose threaded and threadless headsets for mountain and road bikes.
Bike stems are available in a choice of stem length and angle and are a great way to adjust your riding position while cycling. We have a great selection of bike stems for all types of riders, with mountain bikers, preferring a shorter stem with a shorter reach for quickening their steering and road cyclists opting for a stem riser to improve their riding position. For commuters or hybrid bike owners, an angled or riser stem is the way to go if you're looking for a more upright riding position.
