    Another vote for Cane Creek 40 series....probably the greatest quality for price value out there for headsets.

    I third the Cane Creek 40. I have a 110 on one of my bikes and see no point in buying that again. The 40 is plenty good.
    I like turtles

    ^yep. I'm not even sure what the difference is between the two? maybe ceramic bearings? as long as you don't over-torque your headset, decent quality caged bearings should last at least as long as the frame.
