I'm using a mongo 3 now....at first on a jump bike, with zero play at all and lovely *swooshy* feeling bearings...all I can say is....the race is a bit beefy looking if your fork crown is weeny....and it fits awfully tight. great if you plan on never swapping out forks....But I lvoed mine so much I kept the headset from the bike split........I got it off reasonably easy...but installing it on some new forks saw the (steel btw!) race bending a fair bit.....I had to use diamond files to slowly shave the uneven shapes out and fit-file-refit-refile-refit till the gritty feel disappeared. Still lovely bearings even after hammering and filing the damn thing.
Lasty.......the word MONGO on it is a tiny bit embaressing unless you hide that under the stem.
Fsa though...gorgeous....seems everything the mongo is trying to be and more...I bought a white one out of impulse...But Im going to get a red one instead....and its up for sale.....15 posted if you want it?
