Strength:

It was cheap.

Weakness:

Stayed loose.

The only reason I bought this was because it was cheap. From the moment of installation it was loose. My lbs did install it. Wouldn't recommend doing anything beyond the road or it might fall apart.

My advice is don't waste your money.

Weakness:

Durability

Have had the bike for a year, and the headset needs replacing now. This leads me to conclude that the long-term durability of these headsets is poor. After about 150-200 miles riding, water got into the headset (which, to be fair, I did nothing about). Now the action is rough, and the headset needs replacing rather than stripping and maintaining.

Obviously, anything on your bike will last longer if it is well looked after, but a lack of maintenance left this STS AHeadset sorely wanting.

Strength:

I have used this STS for 5 years and without any trouble at all. The use have been 4 season, with -20 degree C (-4 F), any weather condition, rain, snow, sun +++. There have been most traveling on roads, but indeed some forest-tracks.

Weakness:

None. I've just ordered my new CC-STS.

Exxxxcellent headset.

Strength:

Easy to install and cheap.

Weakness:

None yet.

I have ran the crap out of other headsets and they are still going. I feel if you take the time to lubricate and clean a headset once a year and it still turns, then it is good. I use a lizard skin headset seal and I have never had a problem with a headset. I do not see the need for spending $$$ for a headset, they all do about the same job.

I would give it a 4, because there are nicer ones that I have tried, but to even up the score for this I will give it a 5.
