Re-tightening your headset becoming a common problem? Hope has produced a solution with two aluminium wedges which pull together and expand inside any 1.1/8 steerer, giving you a solid thread to pull the stem down on. Top it off with an anodised aluminium cap and bolt, laser etched with Hope's logo.

NOTE: Before use; take apart and grease all if the internal threads and surfaces that have to slide against one another (NOT the surface that will touch the inside of the steerer!), failure to do this will make it feel tight before it is. This makes it tempting to tighten even more, this is a lightweight alloy bolt, it will snap if over tightened. Grease threads and surfaces and it will be fine.

  • Expandable to 26.6mm
  • To fit 1.1/8 steerer tubes
  • Laser etched top cap
  • Weight: 29g

    looks great - but doesn't fit my carbon steerer.

    Considering this style of headset nut is designed for carbon steerers., I was disappointed that this doesnt't fit in the steerer of my Carbon fork.

    The I.D of my fork is 22mm, and this is just under 24mm with the tension backed off. So no chance it would ever fit.

    Hope Head Dr. Cured my forks.

    I absolutely love the Hope Head Dr. and have used them for years. No more smashing in the awful star nut into your steerer, no more problems with it slipping and the hope top cap is very pretty. Worth the price any day!

    Worth the money

    Extremely well engineered and beautifully finished product. Looks great with the Hope spacers
