Strengths:    Looks Nice

Weaknesses:    Vastly over-priced.
Head Doctor is a load of Faff. The bolt is made of cheese.

Bottom Line:   
This is nicely made and finished, there is no doubting. The weight is nothing special...there are plenty of headsets that are as light or lighter. The head doctor is difficult to install. I had to remove the "o" ring to insert it into my RockShox Revelation Forks. There are no torque recommendations for the head bolt and in order to secure the headset properly I snapped the bolt, which is made of cheese. The seals aren't too clever either as my lower race has water in it. But the biggest issue is the price. Hope products are seriously overpriced and have been for years. Bikers pay through the nose because they believe that the products are much better than anything else.....and for the name too!! The products cannot justify the price! Mine was a gift I would never justify buying one.

Strengths:    This headset is great. No wobbling, stays tight, looks great. I didn't use the HED Doctor, but only hear great things about it from friends with carbon steer tubes.

Weaknesses:    Price? still better than CK

Bottom Line:   
This headset is awesome. Not only does Hope offer a ton of colors, but their product is top notch.
