Strengths:    didnt break,looks cool

Weaknesses:    Not well sealed.No matter how much grease you put in ,water gets in and everything starts to rust.

Bottom Line:   
Ive been a bike mechanic for ten years and dont understand why a company would choose chromoly to make headsets ,wich without a doubt will rust.Headset maintenance should only have to be done when you take off the forks for maintenance.So not much more than twice a season.To keep this headset from rusting you almost have to take it apart every two weeks or after every wet rid.Ive been a longtime loyal buyer of syncros products and Ive always been verry happy with there components.But this headset is the worst component Ive ever bought from them!I do not recommend this headset to any one.
