    • Familiarity: 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!


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I just replaced my lower bearing and race on a 3 year old mountain bike. This slid right in and works flawlessly. Immediately removed the creak that I had diagnosed. Cane Creek is currently making some of the best headset components out there.

    • Familiarity: 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!

    Replacement for Ibis Hakkal?gi Disc

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My Hakkal�gi Disc had a few CX seasons under it. In those I was throwing bar-spin no-footed cancan's over the barriers. I need to replace to continue dominance in the 2014-15 season. This popped right in the lower part of the headset and I was back to my Rainier in no time.

    I am going to use a fox float 32 taper fork and the frame has IS 52 at the bottom. This part says 30 mm ? I though the bottom of the fork was 1.5 " can someone explain . will this crown press down onto a ( tapered 1-1/8" --1-1/2" fork's steer tube ? thanks
