    just get one of the cane creek integrated headsets. they go for about 25, and they will look better with your fork than a non integrated one. It comes stock on a lot of low end bikes and works just fine.Also easy to clean and maintain, in my opinion.

    Uggggh, Christ.

    Okay, well…. the last Pake I owned, was a 1" headtube, and came with a 1" threadless fork, with an EXTERNAL headset.

    Secondly, maybe I'm mistaken, but the Volume frames have a 1 1/8" fork with a INTERGRATED headset.

    YOU CANNOT PUT A INTEGRATED HEADSET ON A FRAME THAT IS MADE FOR A EXTERNAL (NON-INTERGRATED) HEADSET.
    YOU CANNOT PUT A 1 1/8" FORK INTO A 1" FRAME HEADTUBE.

    Granted this is an old Pake, it has a 1" threadless, external headset. If it's a brand new 2010 steel Pake, it has a 1 1/8" external threadless headset.

    Most frames with a 1-1/8" headtube (which are quickly becoming the majority) use integrated headsets, not just the cheap ones.

    Ugggh.

    Is it the steel PAKE frame, or the aluminum PAKE frame?

    The new steel frames take a 1 1/8" threadless EXTERNAL cups. The new aluminum frames take a INTEGRATED headset, Cane Creek standard size.

    Learn the difference between a INTEGRATED headset and a INTERNAL headset. Neither Pake frame takes a INTERNAL headset, (which has internal cups that press into the frame).

    By the way… ALL of this information can be found by looking at PAKE website at the frame information. It's ALL there.

    Whoops! What was I thinking(I just woke up)

    Edit: As you can see with the info with Intergraded headsets (which I was blind to see for a second) those internal cups wont fit.

    yea its a steel frame sorry if this pissing you guys off, this is my first build. ill be looking for an EXTERNAL headset now for my build. if you guys can find me a good one for my frame/fork combo that would be appreciated thanks.

    There are tons of external 1 1/8" threadless headsets on the market. It was not long ago that nearly ALL bikes were this standard headset. Now they been replaced by the integrated headsets.

    So, top of the line would be a KING headset. Just down from that would be Cane Creek 110 or 100.

    Middle of the line, would be Crank Brothers Cobalt (which I personally ride), or a few different Cane Creek headsets.

    Others would be FSA, Ritchy, and Aheadset.

    Basically, pick your price range and color. All headsets are going to do the same thing. Preferably, get one with sealed bearings.
