Dear Forumengers

 

Is this a full headset as I classically know it?

 

i.e. if I order this will I receive a bottom race, cup and bearing; and a top race, cup and bearing? with finishings.

 

Please assist

 

Regards

Hiddenset is Campagnolo's trademark for their internal (or integrated) headsets. So it's probably not what you think of as a classic (presumably you mean external headset).

Here's the Campag parts list showing what's included with each headset (4MB PDF):

Here's the Park Tool page with some info on the different headset types:

OK, so I've come to understand that you don't see the cups, because they are inside the head tube.
