At Supergo this awesome cartridge headset is $30! Go get 'em while they last!

I got one of these C2 headsets for a friend from SuperGo and I can't believe what a piece of garbage it was. It is not worth $30.

Really- why? Is the ultegra sealed headset better? I did not get mine yet, but I have never heard anyone talk bad about them. I have seen them on new bikes at shops too, $2500 and up bikes.

Where to start : The cups feel like they're made of tin foil (exaggeration but not by much), The so called sealed cartridge bearings are by no means sealed and they were a very loose fit in the cups, and if weight is a concern it didn't feel all that lite. You should check the reviews on the MTBR site and see what others have been saying.

Is the integrated headset on the giant tcr junk too? Giant is using it on the whole tcr line for 2001.
