I bought this for my latest build, but have just swapped it out for a new CK in matte slate after a slight change of direction colour-wise. :facepalm:

The 110 is a top-flight headset, easily as good as, if not better than the ubiquitous Chris King. The cups are for an inch and an eighth headtube and it has a split crown race for easy fitting.

This was originally red, but had the ano removed and was polished (by the previous owner) to give the finish you see here. It is stunning, the bearings are perfect and it also comes with a matching set of spacers and the original boxes! 8)

First pic shows how it looks fitted.

a review from the interweb: 8)

"The 110 is Cane Creeks flagship headset which they machine in house at their Fletcher, North Carolina facility. This allows them to keep tighter control over quality and design specifications.

Cane Creek warranties the 110 for 110 years which when you take into account the price it makes it the obvious choice for any new build. Along with the amazing backing of the warranty the 110 has a host of unique features not seen anywhere else.

Captured Compression Ring: By enclosing the compression ring within the top bearing cover, the system is protected from outside contaminants while preserving functionality.
Split-Lip Bearing: By incorporating a dual lip design the bearing gets twice the protection of standard headsets while decreasing friction.

Scalloped Interlok Spacers: Provides solid interface between the top cover and spacer stack while shaving 25% in weight off a standard alloy spacer stack.

Premium Headset Alloy: Cups and spacers are machined from 7075 T-6 aluminum, which is 95% stronger than the 6061 alloy used in many headsets.

All these features add up to a great all round package which you will struggle to find anywhere else. At last this is a true contender for Chris King, and when you take into account the warranty Cane Creek are offering, maybe it is Chris King who has some catching up to do."
