    New question here. Cane Creek Slamset or Chris King Inset 2?

    Was wondering how the Cane Creek Hellbender bearings compare to Chris King bearings as far as the quality of the bearings and seals.

    Thanks
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    I'd personally opt for the Chris King. Their headsets tend to outlast the bike, IMHO.

    The whole point is that Hellbenders have better seals than their std bearings.

    That said, I've got multiple CC 110 headsets with the std bearings and they've been going for years. I use LOTS of grease inside the cups (around the bearings) for water protection. Recently sold a bike that had 10yr old bearings that were still running great.
