Cant complain with this product, I cracked my headset cap riding some really rough downhill terrain. The one I had on my bike at the time was plastic, this one is metal and will likely hold up better to repeated abuse. I highly recommend this product!

The Cane Creek 40 series headset is one of those products that gets little praise, but deserves to be lauded. It costs fraction of a more prestigious headsets, but it rarely fails, and comes in sizes to fit just about any frame. Buy and install it with confidence!
