    Chris King Headset

    What's the best deal out there for a new King headset? I'm seeing 'em on eBay for $115-120 all the time (incl shipping). Any better deals than that that you guys have seen? Thanks in advance.

    I got one from eBay a couple weeks ago for $50, and I saw a silver one yesterday on there for $50 also. Just gotta be patient.

    Yeah, eBay, classifieds, or bro-deal hook ups at the LBS are really your best bet to get one under MSRP.

    There have been some reports of fake CK headsets on Ebay. If you search around a bit, there are some posts on how to spot them.

    I use King on all my bikes and have to say they were worth it, but no longer since the price increases.

    There are plenty of good choices out there at a savings from FSA, Hope, and Cane Creek.

    Plenty of good reasons to use King, but really no more than any other brand out there, especially since his restructuring.

    I appreciate and respect the fact that they are a "green" company, which is one reason why I bought from them. I've always had great customer service (changing regular hubs into disc ones).

    Some details here: http://chrisking.com/company/comp_index.html
