    Headset advice

    My wife just asked me for a wish list for Christmas!!!! I'm already planning to up to upgrade my fork, and I figure I might as well swap out the headset. I've got a 2015 trek Stache with a tapered headtube. I was hoping for a few recommendations.

    I like Cane Creek's headsets. The 40 is a really good value in a headset. VERY close in quality to their 110. I have both.

    I second Cane Creek, I have one from 2005 still going.
    Dang it, now I'm running a coolness deficit for sure.

    Cane creek is functional. Chris king is bling.

    I think I'll go for the CC. Thanks for the responses. Got to support companies that still make stuff in NC!

    That's what their website says.

    In Fletcher, NC. Looks like they're right down the street from Industry Nine!
