Phantom Headset

Q: The headset failed on my Phantom. I purchased a 1″ Threadless headset, however, the crown race doesn’t fit the fork — too small. Can you tell me where I can purchase the correct headset and all the information I would need to order.

A: You need a headset with a 27mm crown race and 30mm cups, this is called JIS standard. This is a common size you should be able to get one almost anywhere.
