    Strengths:    Cheaper than grease.

    Weaknesses:    No, Do not be so silly as to ask.

    Bottom Line:   
    Man. This headset is so cheap I paid more for my tube of grease. I did not expect great things for this kinda money, But the fact it's all steel makes it tough as hell. If it breaks, Buy another. It's not exactly expensive!

    Strengths:    I use the SE-1 model. Good resistance to muddy conditions, take a long time before drinking water, very solid, easy for maintenance

    Weaknesses:    a little ugly, seems fragile but it doesn't!

    Bottom Line:   
    Can take all abuse you give to it. I make donwhill and no slack appeared after. The SE-1 model is not sealed. Very easy to fix.
