Catrike headset bearing swap PART 2

Today was the day of the Catrike bearing swap which means I replaced the plastic top bearing in both headsets with a Cane Creek cartridge bearing and compression ring.

I like it when the hidden parts are so colorful ! The green bearings are mountain bike spares that I added to the picture just to show how Cane Creek seems to love fun colors.

This is all I needed for the swap. One 5mm wrench, two 38mm compression rings, and two 38mm bearings.

This swap took about five minutes.....The handling difference isn't huge but it's noticeable. The steering is smooother now and i like it!
