    • Halfords Aheadset Ball Cages and Grease - 5/32" is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 11.
      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't fit These were bought to replace headset bearings in a Boardman road sport but did not fit. The bearing cage was approx 1mm too small to fit over the crown race properly.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from GT Averlance 3.0 (approx 2005) My headetset was grinding and sticking from no maintenance over the 10+ years use - bad me! I really need a complete new headset as the bearing surfaces are not perfect, but this was great as a quick change without the extra time with the bike off road to remove and then find the right size for a complete swap. Without a perfect bearing surface I don't expect to get long term use, but that's my fault and not the fault of this item. Ref grease, tube was full and was enough for both bearings.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy As other reviews said, these are very flimsy. Used to replace a very worn and rusty looking one from the bottom part of the headset. They didn't fit flush so on refit gave clean then more grease which bent the it slightly and dropped a bearing. Straightening up dropped another bearing. Cheap but it also means I'll be buying twice as even if I did get back in I'm not trusting them to last long.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wot no grease!?! Bearings are fine but the grease that came with them was almost non existant. Went to lube the bearing before fitting and as I squeezed the tube, nothing came out but air until I got to very end of it - see pic. Yes, I know I can buy more grease but I shouldn't have to and the bearings are useless without it.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Standard headset" they told me... I needed to replace my lower headset on my road bike. I asked the 'helpful' staff at halfords if they were standard fit. They said "yes", so I purchased 2 sets of the product mentioned above. Problem solved? You're joking! The bearing did not fit my bike and they are not standard by a long chalk!! In the end I paid someone to come and service my bike. I asked if he would like the spare set to use on another bike that he may repair in the future and he (a very good bike mechanic) didn't even want them. So...headset bearing are not standard and don't ask halfords staff for advice. If you have to go to halfords do your homework first.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not suitable but Halfords refunded The Assistant was very knowlegable and was honest! He said it wouldn't fit the bike and gave a full refund.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality, Ill fitting I was very disappointed by the two races - the cages themselves are flimsy and bend very easily releasing the balls. I also found one race to be too small to fit the aheadset - which surprised me as Cane Creek's Aheadset spec has been around for a very long time. Sadly I'll have to write these off and rebuild the headset at a later date.
