Anyone have any good inexpensive alternatives to Chris King??
Looking for an anodised red headset.for $50 or less.
like no other (you have to see one to appreciate the thought that went into this - the craftsmanship, and the Head Doctor system is great too. They (Hope) used to make an Enduro and an XC headset, now they just make a newer style XC. They can often be had on Ebay UK for a good price- I usually buy from one Hope dealer in particular - and the shipping is about the same as from the US to here in Canada (I find they do not bother with duty / taxes either).
Just have to wait & watch.
I'll never use another brand of HS, unless someone can outdo this for the $$. It's a keeper.
There's my 3 5/8 cents. Cheers.

Raceface used to have red headsets, and they might still, but Im not sure about that. IRD's technoglide headset comes in red, but that thing is like $80, so you might as well pay the extra for a king. FSA headsets used to come in red too. You might be able to find one of those pretty easily. The Aireal EV-1 and 9 come in red (airealindustries.com). Some Tange aheadsets come in red. You can find many red headsets if ya look hard enough. Or, you can get some red lizard skin covers on any headset.

Gotta agree on the IRD vs King. I have seen a few of the FSA's from time to time. Will have to keep my eyes open for a red one. There are a couple of Blue ones on ebay at the moment. What price are the Aerials over there?? They are waaaay expensive over here in Oz despite the fact that they are an Australian based company.
