    Crank Bros Cobalt C Directset?

    Anyone know anything about these. The Ahead headset on my SASS is pretty thrashed, so I was looking for a replacement. I ordered one of these Crank Bros "Cobalt C" Directsets more or less on an impulse, but now I'm having second thoughts. Is it really made of Cobalt steel? How well will it stand up against rust? Does anybody have any experience with these? I checked the MTBR reviews and it's a love'm or hate'm kind of thing. What say you?
    Just one more rep and I get the toaster!

    I have the SL and so far it is great, haven't had to adjust it and they are damn light! Cobalt just refers to crank bros XC line of parts.

    I have the Colbalt C on my SS and really like it. It is stupid light and stupid smooth. I killed the ritchey headset I had on there before and needed something that did not suck and was sealed. There is a guy that I race with that has been riding one for almost 3 years and it is bomb proof for him.

    Put it on and ride it like you stole it.
