Da ROUGHSTUFF headsets are unique in that they have
an additional locking mechanism built into the upper race
for added security.
forces on the fork steerer tube are spread over a wider area
because they use an additional bolt within the headset and
not just the clamping bolts on your stem to secure your fork.
Da ROUGHSTUFF headsets also feature a split crown
race which means it can be installed BY HAND and requires
no tools other than allen keys!

purchase an additional Compression Plug (in 25mm or 42mm lengths)
