Hope Pick N Mix Headsets - Top Cup

As you might have worked out by now, headsets are a bit of a minefield! Integrated, integral, reducers, dimensions and types all contribute to confusing the situation. Don’t panic! We have now made top and bottom cups available separately allowing our headsets to fit almost any frame and fork combination. Hopefully this brochure will help you through choosing the right headset for your bike.

A couple of things to remember though - we don’t necessarily do a headset to fit your bike! We have 4 ‘off the shelf’ combinations and a further 18 ‘Pick n Mix’ options. There are other styles, types and fittings out there. The first thing to remember is that you need accurate dimensions if you are at all unsure of what type you need.

The second point to remember is that unfortunately there is no ‘standard’ - OK, we have the dimension 1 1/8”, which covers the majority of headsets now, but as far as Integral, integrated etc...these are simply terms used by different manufacturers to determine what they consider that style to be. Measure, check and measure again!

One thing that is common throughout our range is the quality of materials used to manufacture them, here in our Barnoldswick Factory, the quality of the custom made stainless steel bearings and the time taken to hand assemble each and every one before it leaves, on its way to you!

Options for Top Cup:

  • Steering Tube Size: 1.1/8" or 1.5”
  • Style: Integral, Integrated, Traditional

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Such A Fantastic Idea Well Done Hope I have a really awkward Headset size and couldent find a headset that came in the right size out of a box. Hope have really struck a goldmine (again) here with another simple idea. Products came, fitted perfectly worked perfectly and looked good. Basic Hope product does everything well while looking good :D 13 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Headset I used the Pick n Mix for my Yeti 575 and the Hope looks fantastic once fitted. The quality is typical of Hope well machined, great bearings and really smooth once running. Cant say too much more really, top quality product would definitely buy again. 25 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy pickings..... These Hope pick and mix makes it so easy what ever build you are doing.....couple of measurements and away you go... Enclosed bearings are quality....usual Hope build quality too.... Be good if CRC had stocked the EC44/40 - an external cup which fits a 43.95 steerer tubes but takes a 1.5" fork steerer....had to spend my elsewhere for that one.... 08 August 2013

Answer: 
Not being a Norco dealer I can't confirm, but I believe the Nitro 6.2 runs a 44mm upper headtube, so you can use the 'Type 2' upper cup
