    Best deal on good headset?

    My daughters headset is shot on her little Hot Rock, so I'm thinking of using it as an excuse to upgrade mine. I'm going to pass mine on to her, and put a little bling on my bike, in the form of a blue anodized headset.

    My old bike has a Chris King headset, which is old, but still buttery smooth.
    My new bike has a Cane Creek, which also works fine.
    I see everything from $30 sets I've never heard of, (Chinese junk I'm sure) to the obvious Salsa, Token, Origin8, etc.
    I'm not into buying for the name. I just like how the blue anodized parts look on my bike.
    I ain't a weight weenie, but don't want one that weighs 3 pounds either.
    What are the differences, besides material, and weight?
    Any good experience or suggestions?
    Any you would not recommend?

    Go with a Cane Creek 40.

    Anything higher is just pure bling factor.

    Any colored headset isn't going to be cheap. Cane Creek 40 series are great but only come in black. The cheapest prices I've found for them is at outsideoutfitters.com.
