Is there something like FSA Lightweight bearings to fit instead od Prestine 1859 bearings? Or, some other solution to drop approx. 20g and in FSA price range?

I find this ...

https://r2-bike.com/CANE-CREEK-headset- ... mpagnolo_1
but I'm not sure will it fit.

Diameter of upper bering is 47mm while Pristine is 46,9mm. Is 0,1mm a problem? Also, there is no stated thickness (Prestine is 7mm and 8mm respectively).
And is also says "Campagnolo", while I dont have no signs of Campagnolo on my bike :noidea: :)

Campagnolo means 45x45 angle.

Thanks :thumbup: Didn't know that.

In fact, I know very little about headsets, I always (well, that really only means once I needed a replacement on my last bike, some 8-9 years ago) left the guy at LBS to think about it. But he's not into WW, so ... :mrgreen:

Guys at "r2-Bike" bike are useless when in comes to answering on specific questions, so ...

I looked bit more closely and figure it out that this
https://r2-bike.com/CANE-CREEK-headset- ... ttom-1-1-4
would fit instead of first link in first post. At least I think so :?:

Is there someone with good knowledge of that Pristine headset and would that two Cane Creek bearings (second link in first post) are proper replacement?
