Your Specialized frame does not require any Bottom Bracket or Head Tube pre-installation preparation. All surfaces are already prepared

from the factory, with the exception of greasing the bottom bracket threads and head set cups. It is acceptable to chase the bottom

bracket threads if necessary. Do not face bottom bracket cups.
Ensure that the Bottom Bracket shell threads are clean and greased prior to installation.

Recommended torque is 442 in-lbf (50 N-m). Do

not exceed maximum torque of 670 in-lbf (70 N-m).
Specialized recommends that the headset cup/bearings be pressed in using a Specialized Integrated Headset Press Tool. This tool

is compatible with Park Headset Presses and ensures that the required pressure to install the cups is applied only to the outer sur-

face of the cups, to prevent damage to the bearing.

Grease cups prior to installation.

Note: Use only Specialized Mindset bearing/cups. These bearings are specially designed to fit Specialized Integrated Headset frames.
Removal of the headset bearings is the same as standard headset cups. Use a standard headset cup removal tool. Make sure the tool is

evenly engaging the cup before removal. Be sure not to place the headset removal tool against the alloy frame inserts (cup interfaces), as
they’re bonded into the frame.

WARNING! Do not extend seat post above the minimum insertion line. Extension beyond the minimum insertion line can

result in failure, causing serious injury or death.

WARNING! Great care should be taken to not damage carbon fiber or

composite materials, including the frame and any carbon fiber or composite

components. Any damage may result in a loss of structural integrity, which

may result in a catastrophic failure. This damage may or may not be visible in

inspection. Before each ride, and after any crash, you should carefully inspect

your bicycle for any dents, fraying, gouging, scratches through the paint, chip-

ping bending, or any other signs of damage. Do not ride if your bicycle shows

any of these signs. After any crash, and before you ride any further, take your

bicycle to an authorized Specialized retailer for a complete inspection.
