Can't be beat!
This headset does everything right and get the highest marks due to it's flawless function at a great price. I'm okay leaving the bling and gram saving headsets that cost 4 times as much to others. Use the dough for something better and pick this solid performer up!

Cane Creek 40
Upgraded a worn ball 'n cage that had served its purpose.
The Cane Creek 40 offers a decent stack height for external cups.
Great price for a sealed bearing headset.
Nice, snug press fit on the crown.
Set it and forget it.

Solid, Smooth, Nice Looking
This headset fit my 20+ year old Giant mountain bike - thankfully. It was "easy" to install - specialized tools required to re & re cups into the frame - and feels solid and smooth in use. It's also quiet and has sealed bearings so doesn't require regular maintenance. To boot it looks good - make sure to get the logos placed to your liking for finishing touch.

PROS: Durable, Smooth, Quiet, Attractive Design

Well done, Cane Creek!
Was a litte hard to justify the cost up-front, but all concerns were forgotten upon receipt of the product. You get what you pay for - and this is one darn nice headset. Straight-forward installation with the right tools. Line-up marks are a nice touch to make sure the logo's are centered on the frame. After a three week vaca of hammering through WY, UT, CO, and OR - it hasn't budged. It's as smooth & tight as the day it was installed. When I sell this bike, the head-set stays with me!

PROS: Of Highest Quality, Easy Installation, Line-up Marks

So Nice!
I've used nothing but Cane Creek headsets on all my bikes for at least the past 10 years. With the 40, the sealed bearings get another layer of protection from an additional rubber seal connected (fused?) to the bottom race. Amazing. I have never had a problem with any Cane Creek headset, so I'm looking forward to the next 10 years with this model.

Perfect Headset
This is the perfect headset. I've got a 110 Zero Stack on my MTB and this 40 EC34 on my road bike and I cannot see any reason I shouldn't have bought a 40 for the MTB too. If you hate loose ball bearing setups, this is the perfect cartridge bearing headset.

PROS: Looks good, Smooth

Great Headset For The Price
Great fifty dollar headset. Best of all the internal bearings are available to replace. Trying to find FSA bearings is almost impossible. Comes with the crown race as well. Pressed in with no problems and is very smooth.

Does this set include a crown race?
sped79 on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes- it comes with a crown race that fits very snug. Install it with the
right tool so you don't gum up the rubber seal on it.
