Just seeing if any of you have experience of the Crank Bros Cobalt headset?
Good or bad?
Likey? No Likey?

Have a little looksy here mate, I am looking one myself, but I am getting a mxed bag of responses. Unfortunatley, more opinions are that they aren't that much kop:

Shame really, as I could really use one on my Kona to keep the stack down.

Hi Dan,
I was looking to save a bit of weight - as they are pretty much 50% lighter than a Hope.
For £22 it seems too good to be true - maybe it is?

Yeah, seems like they suffer from a bit of the old 'you get what you pay for' syndrome. They may be lighter, but overall the reviews aren't that great.

But, with a 5 year warranty, you could just keep swapping the replacements over, but thats just a pain in the proverbial.
