I noticed a huge difference in stiffness when i switched over to the Pig from my last headset. I'll buy this headset again if i need one for another bike. The fact that it has caged bearings (which need to be cleaned and greased once or twice a year) is canceled out by the price, so it still gets 5 stars. Worth every penny!

Great Headset for heavy duty riding
A small tribe but we mountain bike on a tandem. Hardtail but a massive XTC triple - crown fork up front. Single track is really hard on the front end. Even DH sealed bearing headsets only last a short while. The oversized lower bearings make a noticeable difference. Not a light headset but on a tandem that isn't the biggest concern. So far so good. I bought an extra crown race just in case. No need as yet.

Bought this for a bare frame DJ build. Originally bought it simply because it was cheap and came in silver. As it turned out, this headset is quite strong and has lasted over 2 years of urband and dirt jump riding on a rigid fork!. Strong headset.

PROS: Strong, cheap, Looks good

CONS: none

BEST USES: DJ, XC

Great Headset
I can't say much to durability yet, as this headset was just installed on a new bike build. I think the reputation of this headset speaks for itself, that's why I purchased it. Nice large lower bearings. It was easy enough to install with a homemade headset press. I was surprised the headset shipped with a star nut, as I don't recall seeing that in the description. I don't anticipate any problems. Would buy again.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Install

Solid FSA Pig headset
Tight clearances are good but will cause some work during installation. I installed the cups by placing a thick piece of plywood on them and hitting the plywood with a hammer (FSA engineer winces). I put this on a Haro BMX bike. I do plan to buy the sealed bearing version of this for a Specialized BMX that I'm working on. Others have mentioned tight clearances with the front brake but I don't have one so can't comment.

PROS: No wiggle, Clear Instructions, Solid headset, Low Price
