    Are headset bearings a standard size? headset froze up during ride

    Have about 300 miles on my new bike. Today while riding the steering felt funny.. I thought I had a flat tire. Next think I knew, I couldn't steer. The headset froze up. Took the Cane Creek Integrated headset apart and a small section of the bearing holder was destroyed. Is this something I can pick up at a bike shop? Is Over tightening the most likely cause?
    Also.. shouldn't the bearings be greased? Mine appeared to have no lubrication at all.

    Take it back to the shop where you bought it.
