    Shot headset?

    When I put my shins against the lowers of my fork from the front of my bike and pull forward on the bars i hear a pretty loud clicking noise and it shifts a little bit, it also happens when i go into something steep really fast and its annoying and i feel like something is going to break. I use a wtb momentum headset. If it needs to be replaced can anybody help me find a cheap headset that wont do this?
    Thanks

    it could be a little loose...but just replace it with FSA DH Pig for under 50 bucks. Do something quick because you don't want to ovalize your frame

    FSA PIG DH

    Best bang for the buck
