cheap, durable, don't think about it!

I've put it through the wringer

A good headset is one you do not have to think about! A year out I haven't had to do anything to this bad boy! It is also cheaper than ost options!

I've put it through the wringer

The Cane Creek 40 headset is my go-to for most bike builds. It costs half as much as other headsets and works really well. If you ride in wet, sloppy conditions then you may consider the double-sealed 110 series headset but otherwise this should do the trick!

Good Stuff

I've put it through the wringer

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!

Unsung Hero of the Bike World

I've put it through the wringer

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!
