Strengths:    Nice finish, but looks only go so far.

Weaknesses:    Does not stay tight. My guess is the pointless split crown race is the problem. Due to the fact you have to overtighten to get it to stay tight for a small period of time (loosened on the first mile)

Bottom Line:   
Save your money and buy a Cane Creek. I put this on one bike to see how it would perform and it was pink! A headset is not something that has changed over the years, and these guys cant get it right-so much for trying any other products from them.

This headset is a complete piece of crap!!!! I don't know if the surface interfaces are not machined right or what but this thing will not hold tight. Never had a cheap headset give me trouble like this $70 piece of junk. DO NOT BUY THIS HEADSET!!!!!!!

Strengths:    Light, Very nice looking (mines red), Smooth

Weaknesses:    none really

Bottom Line:   
Very good value, and good performance, don't expect anything stellar in comparison to the high end (more expensive) Cane Creek or Chris King headsets though but for the price you can't go wrong. I haven't had any issues, I threw these on nearly a year ago and it holds up to practically every weekend of 5 hour riding at kelso and other parks plus my random outings in the city. When this dies I will definitely get another
