i know that volume do, federal will be very soon (if not now), fbm said that they probably will - but these things take time to implement. so at the moment i think that the only co's that are using them NOW are s&m and volume, but more co's will follow.

damnit.
hopefully there will still be regular frames on the market after these companies convert to hidden set.
because hidden set looks like shit.

well it does look a bit retarded, but thats no real problem. they just seem kind of a little pointless you know, the only thing they make easier is intallation and apparently self adjust but if you put in a standard headset well, then there should be no real problem. but having said that im not opposed to them, i just think its kind of like titanium seat clamps, a bit of a muchness, but progression is progression suppose and they are certainly not worse and have no downsides compaired to standard heasdsets, so.........

i have never seen a oversized headset....

and yeah i still prefer standard 1/1-8 threadless headests to internal headsets, i dont hate them as much as euro bbs, and im not opposed to them, im just to convinced that we need them you know?
