    Strengths:    Little Maintenance. Grease Injection. Set and Forget

    Weaknesses:    American Classic Support. If parts are needed in the future, you're screwed.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a truly fine headset. It's too bad AM Classic doesn't support their products very well. If I had to do it over again, I'd have gotten a King headset because they do support their products in the future, not just for a few years.

    AM Classic has made some good stuff, but I treat it as a buy-at-your-own-risk, one-of-a-kind deal.

    Strengths:    easy to adjust, grease injection, looks.

    Weaknesses:    They don't make them anymore. Like one the website they say "once their gone their gone".

    Bottom Line:   
    I have had mine since 96 and has never come loose. IMO it is the best threaded headset out there. All you need to adjust it is 2.5mm allen key and your hand...simple and easy. To relube just inject grease into the ports...done.

    It is the perfect headset. BETTER THAN KING!!!

    Help with 1 1/4 threaded headset

    A coworker brought in his '91 Fisher Procaliber for me to tune up yesterday, and asked me to put the original rigid fork back on it (apparently his son swapped it for a sus. fork shortly after getting it). Everything went fine except that he didn't save the front brake cable stop. I'm assuming tha ... Read More »

    Threaded headset weirdness

    I just picked up an '83 Stumpjumper, and the steering is pretty notchy. The stem was slightly rusted in, but I tapped with a mallet and loosened it up pretty easily, and slid it out. Got the lockring off, slipped off the spacer, and unscrewed the top (threaded) cup. All good so far. But... the fork ... Read More »

I've got everything off so far excep ... Read More »
