They consist of a wreath of balls, bowls, a fork ring, and two mothers that are tangled together (they are so-called "tangles"),
Advantages : cheap headset
Disadvantages : they are quicker to destroy, they must still be tightened
Installation: Put the dishes without bearings carefully into the plate. They must be jammed straight. Put the bearings into the dishes. The balls must be towards the bowls! We put a ring on the fork (flatter bottom, some of the forks are in the package), and then we fly the fork with the fork. Put the mother on the fork. Mothers are so-called "tortures," tightening toward each other in order not to allow themselves.
Non-integrated headsets are only used for threadless forks . They are also used only for non-integrated boards.
Do not use for threaded forks. Damage to the headset, the plate and the fork may occur!
The headset consists of: industrial bearings, bowls, ring (ring headset ring), ring fork.
Today is not much used.
Advantages : Thanks to industrial bearings, rotation is smooth.
Disadvantages : Bowls can wear out, more expensive than a threaded headset
Installation : Carefully pour the dishes without bearings into the plate, they must be clamped straight. Place the bearings in the dishes, the bevelled portion towards the bowl. We put a ring on the fork (flatter bottom, some of the forks are in the package), and then we fly the fork with the fork. Put on the fork the second ring (it should fit in the bearing) and the cap.
