Hi guys,

I've just managed to pick up a Boardman MTB HT Pro frame (2012 model) for minimal outlay on eBay and have most parts sorted for a "get me going" type build as a start point, but I'm struggling to confirm what type of headset I need to get my hands on.

I'm relatively sure that these frames take an integrated headset, but if anyone could confirm this it'd be great. For example, would this fit?

Suggestions as to anything a little cheaper will also be welcomed!

Many thanks in advance, having read up on a few threads here over the past few years (only just signed up after being a long time lurker!) I'm looking forward to getting stuck in myself. My last project was an 8.5kg trials bike for those that are interested:

Cheers,
Luke


Edit; Having hunted around I've found this offering from Superstar too.

Anybody know of any reason that I shouldn't choose this over the FSA and save myself a few quid?

Hi, that FSA Orbit CF is correct... a cheaper alternative is the "Ritchey Comp Drop-In Tapered Headset", usually around £20

Thanks for the response. I got impatient and bought a headset through SSC in the end which fits too, though that Ritchey would have saved me a few additional pennies too. Cheers!

What forks are you going for? Plenty of weight saving there.
