Model/Year: 2017

Pros: Pride Dependability Does what it's supposed to do

Cons: nonce

Recommendation: Never had to change many head sets, except those that were just junk. My bike came with the 40's, and it's staying with them. Price is right, last forever, smooth, just work.

Pros: Smooth as Crisco
set it and forget it

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Buttery smooth.
As others have mentioned, set it up and forget about it.

Cons: None

Recommendation: I currently have this installed on both my trail bike and my downhill bike and they are both problem free. Cane Creek as a great website with a huge data base of bikes to help you find the right size headset for your ride.

Pros: Set and forget

Cons: none found

Recommendation: Running this head set on 2 bikes now soon to be 3. Buttery smooth. Easy to install with the park HHP-3 press.

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Set it and forget it.

Cons: Purely a cosmetic gripe, but, the blue lettering and black headset doesn't match well with a lot of other colors on the market.

Recommendation: Get the job done well, without fuss, and without much maintenance. Isn't this what we all want from our bike gear?

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Smooth, durable

Recommendation: This stood up to almost three years of abuse with no servicing. It is loose now and needs replacement, but it surpassed my expectations.
