|Which threaded headset?||wilsonc|

|My old headset is shot, and i'm looking for a new threaded headset. I know many will recommend King, but I'd like to go for something less expensive (as the cheapest I can find a King for is $90). Which would you pick from the list for the best "bang for the buck":
Stronglight Delta ($30)
Stronglight A9 ($33)
Ritchey Logic ($20)
FSA Duron X Sealed Threaded ($45)
FSA Duron DL Roller Threaded ($25)
|I've had great luck with Stronglight Delta.||dzrider|

|Judging by how long they've been on the market I'd conclude I'm not the only one. The one I put on was easy to install and has been maintenance free for 4 or 5 years. Look at Chuck's bikes, who may have good deals on FSA or Ritchey.|

|Cartridge bearings that you can replace. Should last forever.|

|Ultegra. Best bang for the buck.
Had a King. Nice headset but had a hard time trying to find correct spacers (they are not typical 1") when I switched forks, couldn't, thus a waste of money.
Also had Ritchey's. Hated them. POS.
Also use an LX on my tourer. Also a reliable and durable headset. Not as pretty though...
