Pinarello is one of those manufacturers that use a proprietary integrated headset design in their high-end bike frames. We've never had any issues with them. In fact, we have trouble recalling anyone ever calling with a need for replacement bearings.

Nevertheless, it doesn't matter how good the factory bearings are, they'll eventually need service and potentially replacement. So if you've got a million miles on your Pinarello and have noticed the headset getting a bit notchy, then these are what you'll need. We have them in three versions -- FP 1.25", FPX 1.25" and Prince 1.125".

The Prince 1.125" works as the upper bearing for all models in addition to being the lower bearing used in the Paris Carbon, F4:13, FP6, and Prince SL. The FP is the lower bearing for the 2006 magnesium Dogma FP. The FPX is the lower bearing for the Dogma Carbon, Prince Carbon, Dogma FPX, FP3, and FP7.

Please Note: You'll want to have a qualified mechanic (you or otherwise) do the replacement as the bearings have to be pressed out/in with the appropriate tools.

Issues with integrated headset bearing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I found that I had to replace my neck headset bearings on my Pinarello Quattro in less than two years. It wore out very quickly and seized. Locking the handlebars.

There are similar integrated bearings in the cranks and whilst in the middle of 3-Dams challenge ride these bearings seized, and locked tight. I was 91km and 3 1/2 hours into the ride and they must have got really hot and seized the crank. When they cooled down they began to move again.

So if I was to comment on them if you have them fitted to your bike, like I do, get them replaced every 2 years, or they can leave you sitting beside the road waiting for a rescue pick-up. When they are worn out they have a tendency seize up and lock.
