Like all of Tune's components the BuBu headset is manufactured in Germany. The BuBu is a lightweight, semi-integrated headset of elegant design and flawless functionality. The aluminum cups, crown race, and bearing cover are accurately machined for weight savings, and mated with high quality, angular contact steel cartridge bearings for durability.
Included with each Bubu Headset is a carbon top cap and aluminum bolt, as well as Tune's cleverly designed Gum Gum expander plug.
Installation of this headset's cups will require a headset press with appropriate adapters. The crown race is split for easy, tool-free installation. Care should be taken when fitting the delicate plastic upper bearing cover.
