    Headset - Cane Creek or Chris King?

    Probably been covered before but I am too lazy to search. Cane Creek, Chris King headset or flip a coin? This is for a new TI Lynskey r230.

    King is clearly superior quality, if you want to pay for it.

    I went with a CC 110. Why? Just for a change. Plus they have a 110 year warranty. It was on sale at Chain Reaction for just under $100 just over a year ago - lots cheaper than a King. I see today they're $217 Canadian. Ouch-ouch-ouch.

    Simply put, King is the best. I've seen one KIng headset outlast four bikes!

    Chris King headset's are awesome. The one on my Merlin is about 9 years old, and besides regular service (have it greased every couple of years), I've never had a problem with it.

    You might take a look at the Tune Bobo, I have it on a couple of bikes, very solid, minimal and elegant too! Tune Bobo Headset [TUNE BOBO HDS] : Fairwheel Bikes, Cycling Boutique
