My mate is a fickle chap...keeps buying and selling frames and bikes...I don't know, he just never seems happy with what he has got.
Anyway...he tells me he has slightly overspent...and although I....damn...I mean he wants a CK Silver headset for his next project..it might be too expensive.
What others would you recommend.
WTM Momentum?
Cheers
Carl

Hope or Ritchey Scuzzy logic

I had a WTB headset fail in about 6 months from brand new, have run 2 Ritchey Scuzzy Logic's for over 3 years with no probs & no servicing.

Cane Creek or Crank Brothers Cobalt are good choices.
