As per the title really. I've seen some fantastic deals on Cane Creek headsets but alas they are all black, the only silver ones I've seen are M-Part who I have no experiance with or knowledge of, so any recemendations, preferably with links would be apprechiated.

Thanks

Campagnolo Record. It even has grease ports in the lower race to allow re-greasing without dismantling the steering. A wee squeeze of grease every 3 months and they last forever.

Campyoldy has some Record ones for £40.

+2 for Campag Record (especially at that price), double especially if it is for a European frame. Consider a Chris King for on an American frame.

+1 on Chris King, they are amazing. I have one in my MB1 that is 20 years old and still smooth as butter. Easiest headset to adjust in the world too.
