Which do you use and which ones are the best to use?
Have a new frame and forks to play with but wondering which way to go.

Integrated is a style, Aheadset is a brand, and unfortunately, your frame makes your decision for you. Measure the inside diameter of the headtube (top and bottom) and go from there.

I thought A- headset was a type of headset, one with extra cups that you put in your frame first?

you dont choose a headset.

you choose a frame and then there is a specific style of headset that will only work with that frame. depending on the frame there is integrated, internal, press fit, and a range of diameters as well

aheadset is a brand. granted, they were one of the first that made that style of headset. the generic term is threadless headset.

with an integrated headset, the cups are machined into the headtube.
