  2. Hi, bought this frame from their outlet. It came with an FSA integrated headset, not installed.
    I fail to finf instruction to install it, could you point to a guide, or explain in step-by-step fashion?
    Beautiful frame, look forward to ride it!

  4. Hi. There are a few videos on YouTube showing you how to install an integrated headset. Essentially, there are 2 bearing rings which are similar for most brands. Pop them into the head tube making sure they fit snugly. The chamfered edge should not be seen. Most likely, you won't need a tool but if it's a tight fit, use a rubber mallet and gently tap it in or else, use a headset installation tool. The crown race is installed onto the fork. Make sure the chamfered edge is pointing upwards so that it sits properly with the lower bearing when the fork goes into the head tube. As its a carbon fork, you need a headset expander rather than a star nut. Make sure you measure the correct length before you cut the fork. I always give a 10mm allowance (1 spacer) allowance so that I can move the stem up or down 10mm. Good luck with the installation. You will love the bike.

  5. Thanks Gabriel! Turns out Olmo sent me the wrong bottom bearing. There were also a gasket and a cut shim ring I couldn't figure out how to assemble...
    A fresh new start when the nrw headset arrives.

  6. Turns out install was dead easy. Happened to have a hole saw for my drill, made holes in a plank (different diameters from either side so to fit the tapered steerer). Then hit the crown race repeatedly by hand power, whilst holding the fork in the other hand. Five minutes later, all set.
