I'd stick with king. They are a headset manufacturer that makes headsets. Race face is a crank manufacturer that also makes headsets.

My $.02...

How about the syncros hardcore headsets? They are like 35$ shipped on ebay, and supposedly as good as king. I'm getting one of em for my ss project.

Imagine that...
CK headset..warranty=10 years
CK hubs..warranty =5 years
CK bottom bracket??? ..warranty... 2 years???
well, since your RF bb's last only about a month each, a 2 year warranty would be sweet!
i'm pulling for you!

I hope the race face head set bearings last longer in their head sets than they do in their bottom brackets!!!

If a CK BB ever does come out, will it last as long as a phil wood? That is the question.

King

Stick with the King. I find that I've never been sorry after buying the best equipment, but I invariably have second thoughts after settling for something less.
