Sette RS-D230 HeadlockSecure, Sturdy, and...it's Sette!
I always worried that my stem would come away from my fork on my runs. This alone put my worry aside, made my bike feel more solid, protects my headset by taking away any chattering sound. This alone is the one part that can save you.
Okay, so I was a bit skeptical that this lightweight bolt could hold up under pressure, but I've had it on my rig for over 3 years now and it's still going strong. I highly recommend this over the star-nut setup. It is exactly as described: "Secure, Sturdy, and it's...Sette!"
So much cleaner and easier than a star nut, no scratching up the inside of your steerer tube, and no tool needed to remove, other than a hex key of course. Looks really clean on my Stumpy w Thomson stem, and the anodized bolt head ties in with the anodized red on the Fox Fork compression adjust. I also love that the base of my head tube is now sealed off, really cool. I would imagine also that if your stems pinch bolts failed, this would be much more security for your front end than a star nut. Super light as well.
I got this because I had issues with a headset that would not stay tight after reading the other reviews I gave this product a shot this fixed my problem and just like the others said I love price point great deals great products great company !! This was cheap looks good and was cheap !!!!!!!!! Would give it 5 stars if it came in other sizes other then one size
A great alternative to star nut! Much faster and easier to install and doesn't require a star nut seating tool! Really keeps your headset/steerer assembly together and never had a problem with it loosening itself. Only bummer is that you can only use it on 1 1/8 steerer tubes.
This product is probably little known. But worth your attention. I could not get an expander plug , or a star nut ( a big no no ) , to stop slipping in my carbon steerer tube. This product solved the problem! Nice tight bearing tension. Added stiffness over a star nut or expander. Super easy to use. Light weight for its purpose. Just get one. Set and forget.
So much easier than the star-fangled nut. Upgrade parts cost less than the proper tool for seating the nut, and no risk of damage for those with a carbon tube.
