There aren’t that many companies producing these angle changing headsets, so it’s great to think we have one over here in Blighty, that being Works Components in Cannock, West Midlands. These quality headsets are designed and made in the UK, offering head angle degree changes from 1 to 2 degrees, for what seems like most makes and models of bikes. I used the 1.5 degree changer to steepen my head angle when converting the GT from 26″ to 27.5″ and it worked a treat, plus unlike other angleset manufacturers, the bearings in mine are still running smooth as silk.
They also offer headset spares and stem spacers, plus we are awaiting their first batch of Sram style (no chain device needed) chainrings.
