Strengths:    Zero maintenance. Solid. Quality at a reasonable price.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent. I had the Cane Creek S-Pro installed over 4 years ago at the Pony Shop in Evanston, Il. In over 4 years, and thousands of miles over Chicago's rough city streets and Pennsylvania hills, it's never needed further adjustment. No problems whatsoever. I call that a rock solid component.

Strengths:    Neoprene seals, water proof grease, great value

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Great headset! After first ride I had to re-adjust it. Have not touched it since. I ride year round through heat, cold, rain, mud, and snow. Headset still very smooth. As with any headset, proper installation is critical. I have an FSA Orbit Xtreme headset on my hardtail. I would recommend either headset to any cross county rider. No need to spend more than $50 or $60 for a great headset.

Strengths:    Stainless Steel crown race, top shelf bearings very smooth.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Could not disagree more with the previous post. I have had absolutely no problems. At the $50 price I paid it is an excellent value. Will post again if things go downhill like the previous posting.

Strengths:    Looks Ok, comes in a neat box.

Weaknesses:    Garbage, requires constant adjustment.

Bottom Line:   
I did quit-a-bit of research before buying this headset, and everyone said to go with a Chris King. Well in an effort to save a few bucks, I purchased this POS; this headset has about 20 hours of riding on it, and has required four adjustments already. It to the point where it's slightly binding when the handlebars are cranked to the left, or right--yet somewhat loose straight forward!
This headset has been used mostly in rock gardens, with a 125 mm Psylo SL soaking up the bumps. I've yet to bottom out the fork with this headset installed (no big hits), yet it constantly loosens.
The $10.00 POS it replaced held up much better, only requiring one adjustment in the 6 months. Run, don't walk from this POS--Crane Creek, you owe me $50.00!!!!!
