Rated 5 out of 5 by John98 Excellent value
Bought this as part of a build for commuter bike. Easy to fit and after a month of riding with it I have no issues, running nice a nd smooth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jedi Very easy to fit (no press required) and comes with a slit fork race
Having not used a 45/45 headset before, I purchased this for my new frame and readied my headset press for popping it in when it arrives.
But to my delight found that 45/45 headsets just drop in.
It does come with a split race for the forks too which is really convenient - although I have a race setting tool - I don't really like taking a hammer to a bike haha.
One problem I found though, is that the split race seems to move very slightly while riding and I can hear it.
Not sure if it is the top on or the bottom one though will take it apart and try setting the race split to the centre instead of the side to see if that solves the noise.
Otherwise very happy with the headset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Giles Great Price!
I delayed reviewing this product whilst I built my bike but I am happy to say this is a great product, particularly considering the price :)
If you are looking for a budget headset, I highly recommend this item.

I needed a replacement unit for my Planet X road frame and the Planet X one was twice the price as this. Given the Planet X one had Token bearings in it, this was a no brainer decision. Fitted identically, has been working without problem. It's such great value I'm going to buy another for the cupboard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Quality headset at bargain price
This is a decent headset, very smooth running - a noticeable improvement over my previous one. The races are the type with a small gap, so are easy to install/remove - no special tools required.
Only thing that gave me trouble initially was that for my particular frame, I needed to add some shims to raise the top cover off the headtube - and had to source these separately. Luckily my LBS mechanic happened to have an set spare from a headset he'd recently fitted, so I guess some other headsets do include these in case they are needed.
Been running it for over a year now (3000+ miles), and still nice and smooth.
