Has anyone found any good ones recently?
I've been searching and there doesn't seem to be much in between an el-cheapo £12 jobbie and a £100 Chris King!

Ritchey still have a couple of decent headsets in 1"; CRC have some, SJS are a bit pricey and UKbikestore seem to have a couple of different options.

Yeah there are some decent and reasonably priced Ritchey ones out there.
I went for a campagnolo Record headset, mid-priced but good quality.

Fine are the distributor, they do not sell direct, however if you have a good relationship with your LBS I am sure they will get in touch and order for you. I have just ordered an IRD freewheel and Bottom Beacket, partly out of curiosity and partly because I want to use this stuff on my commuter so need to know what the quality is like.

Its refreshing to see a Company put some effort into making a quality freewheel and square taper BB, the call for it could be increasingly large (see Suntour rise again thread).

Drop me a PM if you want to go the IRD route but are struggling to get hold of it.
