Hidden headset

  1. I have the campy hidden headset... less than 1000miles ..got play in
    the bottom bearing/cup... Since I don't know anything about the hidden
    headset, I took it to the shop.. the replaced the lower bearing but
    that didn't solve it.. required a lower cup replacement as well. It is
    fine now.

    what would cause this so early in the game?

    where can I see an exploded view of a hidden headset. I would like to
    learn more about them. I have cannondale mountain bikes and they all
    have cups/bearings pressed into the head tube .. do the road bike
    hidden headsets look the same only smaller in diameter?
