Other than I don't have any need for the strength that the Chris King Steelset offers... the fact that I probably won't ever be able to remove it and it weighs 2X as much as most others... Is there any other reason a Steelset would be an issue... as in create a new problem?
I came across a chris king steelset headset and it has a bit of a unique color/etched graphics in that it looks fairly industrial in plain brushed steel with I guess the softer graphics almost not there- where most of them get a marbled color from the heat treating and white King logos (even though most of the std King have gone to the sotto etched graphics). So I happen to like the brushed stainless look and at the price it makes sense but I have zero need for the deeper cups on the XC bike I plan on using it... and the 100g of extra weight...well the frame is already steel...
