I recently purchased the Neutron complete from flybikeco, and i'm having problems with some of the descriptions it has on the websites it is listed on and would appreaciate if somebody could help clear this up.
So,
In the description of the danscomp listing ( https://www.danscomp.com/products/102887/2017_Fly_Bikes_Neutron_Bike.html ) it claims that the bike's frame has an integrated headtube. Due to this I am thinking that the bike uses an integrated headset. But, on the listing from the flybikeco website ( http://www.flybikes.com/#!/products/2017-neutron-flat-black-complete ) it says it has a "Internal Sealed Bearing" headset. What does this mean? What's the difference? Is it Integrated or Internal? Any help would be seriously appreciated.

Thanks!

Your bike has the usual integrated headset.

Some companies are retarded and thing "integrated" & "internal" are interchangeable when they are actually very different things.

Your bike has an integrated headset, I'm positive because I've worked on one before and internal ones are usually used on race frames anyway.

integrated headset uses internal sealed bearings.
old headsets had loose ball or cage bearings and a cup that you had to press fit into the headtube to put the bearings in.
afterwahile they found a way to do sealed bearings that were 100x resilient as well as easier to install and removed the necessity of a headset cup by INTEGRATING it into the headset which is why we now have "INTEGRATED" Headsets.
all that to say, integrated headsets only work with sealed bearings so you have nothing to worry about.
