Strengths:    Finaly a proper solution for integrated headsets??!!

Weaknesses:    Needs some precision machinenin' to the headtube

Bottom Line:   
Does anyone have any experience with this headset? I would realy like to hear from you! I don't want to give up my frame, cuz it's a great piece of work but the headset is givin' me a headace, bigtime (damn that ritchey headset!)
I wonder what the mayor problems are installing a Perdido set, because the machining that is probably needed.
(and for Dutch readers: where can I buy one, bike2build doesn't even sell 'em)
