|I almost bought one with a gruppo but someone here says they aren't very good. I called the place where I bought the gruppo to cancel the HS and he asked what I was going to use. I told him I was going to get a Cane Creek C2...which he doesn't carry. he said that he doesn't recomend Cane Creek headsets, hmmmmm...
I think he doesn't recomend them because he doesn't sell them. I would have just gotten a King but I'm already over budget on this project.
What's bad about a Chorus? Any bads on Cane Creek headsets?
Thank you again, for your support:)

|I use both headset, and I have no complaints about either one. The Chorus has a very low stack height mind you, other then that it is an exceptionally nice headset. I rally can't see how you could go wrong with it.
The Cane Creek is nice too. I've had one on my mtn bike for 4 years now. It works fine.

|I think they are a real bargain. I have used them successfully. I have a chorus headset on the new main ride that I just built up. You get all kinds of opinions on the board here. My opinion, based on personal experience, is that you're just fine with a chorus headset.|

|How good or bad can a headset really be? Their only purpose is to allow the steering tube to turn left or right. I have completely overhauled every piece of bike equipment, but have never once touched a headset, even on my 15 year old bike...but it still works perfectly. What exactly makes a headset bad or, as I often read, Chris King headsets the absolute best?|

|I ruined 3 by hitting potholes hard, and hammering the bearings into the races. The cheaper ones are more likely to do this. Never did with a Record, Chorus, or King.

|I broke a Race Face MTB HS ($80...not a cheapie). It broke the bottom cup at the diameter that presses into the bottom of the head tube. I replaced it with a King and never had a problem again. I have the same King on a different MTB now and have had no problems...and I ride this bike a lot harder now then I did the previous bike.
My concern with the Chorus was maintenance. Why build a bike with a HS that you have to pull apart and clean/grease on occasion when you could use a sealed cartridge and not have to mess with it?

|Never had any problem with any of the Campag headsets I have bought, be they Athena, Chorus or finally Record. They have all been fit and forget.|| |
