After a new headset for my Stumpy - standard 1 1/8" threadless....

There are so many to choose from, any thoughts as to which is the best to go for around the 30 quid mark?

Cheers,

Matty :D

Hope. Picked most of mine up for around that, they have all been very close, if not, new.

I was quite impressed with the Token headset I fitted recently, seems well made and the bearings are silky smooth: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/token-tk737acb-heavy-duty-threadless-mtb-headset/

FSA Orbit MX. Can be had for much less and is a great bit of kit for the money. The last one I got was from Rutland and they had several colours too.

Bought one of these Crank Bros headsets from CRC http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=24987, low stack height, sealed bearings, deep cup inserts and an absolute bargain at under £20!
