I ride around 4,000 miles a year mostly commutting. The bike I use gets banged through several sections of rough road. My former FSA Extreme Orbit headset held up for almost four years (over 15,000 miles). The lower cup on the old headset was a bit underbuilt for my route. This is a bit heavier, but that's a plus for how I'm using it. So far I'm getting smooth turns and great performance.

Ok, so it was cheap, I know you get what you pay for. But there was play in it, and I couldn't get rid of the play. Obviously I am not going to ride with play in the fork. So I bought a Cane Creek entry level headset for five dollars more. It is a much more refined design that actually shows some engineering know how and looks much better on the bike. Installed the Cane Creek easily and no longer have play in the fork. I suggest going with something a little better than this FSA. I didn't realize how much I like sealed bearings untill I installed this pig of a headset.

        The cups hold up really well. I was able to replace the bearings once or twice before the races in the cups started to show wear.

        It's a tad heavy, but it works.

        Best headset your money can buy at this price range. Excellent quality and it is built tough. You won't be disappointed is you decide to buy. The only thing that would make it better is if it came in different colors.

        It's burly, easy to maintain, and burly. Oh, and burly. Not for XC, but for DJ and AM I'd save your time and not even bother looking for anything else.

            I do kinda like packing the bearings but can agree with those that don't. Good quality so far though.
