    We're proud of our customer service and liberal return policy -- we want you to be satisfied. So we're happy to sell the Cane Creek 110-Series Headset. After all, it has a 110 year no-questions-asked warranty. You want a dependable, great looking headset to add style and performance to your bike? Look no further.

    The 110 begins life when Cane Creek machines the cups from custom drawn, US made seamless 7075 aluminum tube. Each part has been relieved of excess material, inside and out, to keep the weight to a bare minimum while retaining the strength you'll depend on. These cups house the stainless steel sealed cartridge bearings, both of which use Cane Creek's proprietary split-lip seals to keep the grease in and contaminants out. At the same time, these seals run smoothly against the races with a minimum of drag so your steering feel will be rock solid, yet will respond to the lightest touch on the bars. It's quite possible that dirt and muck will never even reach the bearing seals anyway. The 110 Headset includes low-friction seals on the top bearing cover and on the crown race that effectively seal the cup and bearing contained within.

    Another advantageous detail of the 110 is the captured compression ring under the top bearing cover. It facilitates easy assembly and eliminates the possibility of rocking or creaking regardless of the small variations often found in steerer tube diameters. And for lightweight carbon fiber steerer tubes, the extra surface area over other systems ensures a damage free compressive junction. All these technical details aside, you may simply lust for the jewel-like quality of the 110-Series Headset due to its highly polished finish or its rich anodized colors. And that's perfectly fine too.

    The Cane Creek 110-Series Headset is designed to mate a fork with a 1-1/8" straight steerer to a head tube having a 34mm I.D. on top and bottom. This is what we'd call a traditional headset as the external cups house the bearings outside the confines of the head tube. It's available in Black and Red.

    4 Years, Zero Issues

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A few years ago I decided to take a walk on the wild side by running something other than a Chris King. What the... Yeah, die hard CK'er since the 90's, back when I was a wee little lad. Anyhow, I've had absolutely zero issues running this thing ragged. None, zilch, nada! It stands up to the abuse and just begs for more, which I'll gladly dole out any time I ride it.

    The 110 can definitely go toe to toe with Chris King; however, their only downside is the dang colorways. I sure wish they had more offerings!


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Cane creek headsets in all price ranges have always performed well. Building a steel rig that I plan to have for a long time so went with the best Cane Creek offered. I like the subtler logo/branding on the Cane Creek vs. Chris King (my second choice was the black on black voce King). Fit/finish/smoothness all seem to be right on. Expect years of hassle free operation.

    Unanswered Question

    I just bought a 2017 SC Hightower CC frame and wanted to know if the Cane Creek 110 (or Cane Creek 40 without SS bearings) upper and lower headset and bearings will fit this frame ?
