The Good: Does the job without complaining
The Bad: none found so far
Headsets don't normally get a lot of love since it's not a flashy item that everyonedrools over. No matter to the Cane Creek folks who are making some really good headsets these days and at reasonable prices. I've had this headset twice now, one on a bike I had a year ago and sold and now on my do-it-all bike that sees everything from local trails to the bike parks in the summer. This one does the job and has given me no issues whatsoever on either bike. So I guess I could have bought a headset that cost three times as much... but what would I gave gained?
Another reason why I like CC headsets is that they have a handy guide on their website to help you make sure and get the right match with your bike frame and the fork you have. With so many different headtube types, it's good to know they cut through the confusion and have you covered.
Barring some future issue with this headset, I'd have to say that the price and solid function merit a full star rating.
