Selling my Cane Creek S8 1" 1/8th headset as I've "upgraded" to a King :)
There is nothing wrong with the headset, in fact even after a years infrequent use it's still virtually as good as new, the bearings are super clean and smooth and the exterior shows no sign of wear or cable rub, there are just a few small marks on the underside of the crown race from where it was removed.
I wish I could say more about this headset but it just sits there and does it's job quietly and without fuss! imo it's arguably a better engineered design than the CK headset.

-Updated design of the popular S-6 with replaceable bearings and a lighter, more compact profile.
-Over-hanging cup cover design Sealed, stainless steel cartridge bearings with integrated rubber seal
-Ultra low friction and high durability
-Waterproof grease with 100% fill rate protected by removable neoprene seals
-Stainless steel crown race with integrated rubber seal -CNC-Machined 6061 cups and upper bearing cover with O-ring seal
-Fits traditional head tubes and uses external bearing cups 1/18'' 112g


£20 posted (these sell for £30+ new)
