Hello, all!

What are the differences in stack height, design and quality between Campy Record, Nuovo Record, and Gran Sport headsets?

Anyone know the stack height for a Stronglight B3 Delrin headset, OEM on some early '80s Treks? (I know, the pertinence of this one is debatable) I have to replace one.

Is there a Stronglight that I should look for as a replacement, but made of metal? It doesn't seem that all Stronglights had the same stack height.

I can just use a Tange Levin CDS, but I'm not sure if the stack height is compatible with my frame, because they are so short (33.4 mm).

Still in headset hell,
