Hi,

 

Looking at building up a new frame(Mongoose Meteore) it makes use of an integrated headset.

 

Apologies for all the stupid questions to follow:

 

How do I know what bearings to use (something about 45 vs 36 degrees?)

How do I install them?

What headset do I need?

Do they need a special fork grown?

Please help!Embarrassed

You don't have to grow it, you can just buy one

Get a threadless headset. They have sealed bearings.

 

Have a look on wikipedia for how they look
