Awesome Headset

Rating:
The Good:

Smooth and trouble free. Have had one on 3 frames over 10 years and it's still super smooth and in great condition. It's the silver color and still looks great as well. Not cheap but for all the use mine has seen it's been totally worth every penny. Probably less than buying lesser headsets every couple years.

The Bad:

Nothing comes to mind.

Overall Review:

Great trouble-free part that will last a long time.

Chris King No Thread Headset

The Good:

WOW. ALL I HAVE TO SAY. SO MANY COLORS TO PICK FROM YOU CAN GET A RASTA ONE OR IF YOUR A HIPSTER KIND OF KID THEN YOU CAN GO WITH PINK ( I WOULD NEVER! ! ) BUT YOU CAN. I LOVE THE SMOOTH FEEL THAT LASTS YEARS AFTER YOU PRESS THEM INTO YOUR FAME. OVER SIZED BEARINGS THAT CAN TAKE ANYTHING YOU CAN LAND AND EVERYTHING YOU CAN'T. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A 10 YEAR WARRANTY ON ANY OTHER HEADSET OUT.

The Bad:

THEY NEED TO MAKE INTEGRATED CARTRIDGE BEARINGS CAMPY TYPE. BUT I KNOW THEY WILL SOON.

Overall Review:

CHRIS KING GET IT. YOU ONLY HAVE TO GET ONE FOR EVERY BIKE YOU HAVE. LOOK SICK AND LAST LONGER THEN ANY OTHER PART ON MY BIKE. HATS OFF THE THE CHRIS KING FAMILY. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE YOUR MISSING OUT BIG TIME.
