Stronglight A9 Headset

The roller bearing Stronglight A9 headset is one of those special components that defy time. Its roller bearings last for ages, it is very light (82 grams), it does not develop index steering, it has classic good looks, and it is reasonably priced. In fact, it makes you wonder why anyone else bothers to make headsets.

We stock them in the British size but can get the French version in a few days. ($35) Don't be misled by the low price; these are as good a headset as any made today.

Does anyone want the threadless version of these?

I might be interested in a threadless one, but probably not for several months.
