Too tall

Too tall a stack for my Gitane Tour de France

FRENCH THREAD HEADSET

I HAVEN'T INSTALLED IT YET. I HAVE USED SEVERAL OF THESE AND THEY WORK WELL. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT THE STACK HEIGHT WAS A LITTLE TOO MUCH FOR A PEUGEOT UO-8, HAD TO TRIM AND REFACE THE HEAD TUBE TO GET THE HEADSET THREADS TO HOLD.

THANKS.

Just the right bit to get those vintage French bikes back on the road....

,,.because we all know vintage French bikes are almost guaranteed to 'plane'!
Works as claimed, a bargain but make sure the stack ht work with the fork length first.
Would be even better if it gets sealed bearings, but not a big deal.

1" French Thread Headset

Read some comments on line about this item being tall. They were correct. I did a steering tube replacement, and gave the replacement tube about 1 cm extra length, and am still only able to engage about 3 threads on the lock ring.
Otherwise, looks good, finish is great. Headset pressed on just fine, and is aligned properly, and installed fork rotates as desired (bearing surfaces are machined carefully.
If you need French, do buy this product, but measure first, and do a little math. Velo Orange does publish the dimensions.

Decent product, but not suitable for all vintage French bikes

This is a decent headset, but I've found that the stack height is significantly higher than the headsets you tend to find on French frames from the 60s-80s. This means you can be left with a steerer tube that is too short to properly accommodate the headset locknut. In some cases it only screws on to around a quarter to a third of its height. I don't feel comfortable only giving it this much. I've tried refacing the top and bottom of the head tube, but you can't make a significant difference to the overall height.
