So, I'm giving my bike the "mid-Feb./I'm bored" clean-up and spit shine. As I'm going around my fork I'm seeing a lot of black gunk that looks like it's coming out of the bottom of the fork race crown. I haven't riden in rain or anything but it could be some road grime. My question is: Should I be concerned? I haven't had the bike a year and only have maybe 1300 miles in so far. Should I be re-greasing the headset?

If your headset was seaping slowly it might have some grime around the bottom.
It probally is road grime.
Newer headsets are pretty bomb proof.
If it ever did wear out you could stick a CHRIS KING
headset on it. Those things last forever and are worry free.
