    Strengths:    Little Maintenance. Grease Injection. Set and Forget

    Weaknesses:    American Classic Support. If parts are needed in the future, you're screwed.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a truly fine headset. It's too bad AM Classic doesn't support their products very well. If I had to do it over again, I'd have gotten a King headset because they do support their products in the future, not just for a few years.

    AM Classic has made some good stuff, but I treat it as a buy-at-your-own-risk, one-of-a-kind deal.

    Strengths:    easy to adjust, grease injection, looks.

    Weaknesses:    They don't make them anymore. Like one the website they say "once their gone their gone".

    Bottom Line:   
    I have had mine since 96 and has never come loose. IMO it is the best threaded headset out there. All you need to adjust it is 2.5mm allen key and your hand...simple and easy. To relube just inject grease into the ports...done.


    It is the perfect headset. BETTER THAN KING!!!
