Chris King's New DropSet 6 Headset is Built for Abuse
@justanotherusername: mine never felt nice from the get go and never got so bad that I felt like going through the trouble. Sold the bike and honestly went with cheap headsets for the last year due to changing standards and bikes. Recently I built a bike with the express purpose of keeping it for the next 10 years. It got a King headset and bb.

Chris King's New DropSet 6 Headset is Built for Abuse
Chris King has been focused on sustainability since The 90‘s. They started using soy based machining oil and use a press to reclaim/recycle it, then send the resulting aluminum pucks for recycling. They also brought anodizing in house because bovine was doing it to their environmental standards. I have a huge amount of respect for them for that alone. I still have a bike in service with a CK Headset from 2001, with absolutely no maintenance.

As long as you will have the frame long enough or can swap the headset to your next bike, it is worth it.

@justanotherusername: 440C stainless is what they use for bearings, and it will rust. I had the same experience with a 110 headset. Not worth the money. However, I’ve had multiple CK headsets without issue. They have better sealing.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Derailleurs Have You Actually Destroyed While Riding?
@malca: check your chain length while cycling the suspension (let the air out of the shock or remove the coil) in the largest cog.

Review: Velocio's Trail Access Hardshell Jacket is Breathable & Understated
@rickybobby19: the Patagonia Dirt Roamer Storm pants are expensive but also insanely good when it’s really wet. They breath unbelievably well and even borderline not warm enough below 8C or so. Haven’t tried the jacket though.

Review: Velocio's Trail Access Hardshell Jacket is Breathable & Understated
@rickybobby19: the Houdini is so good. Fits in a pocket and good for light rain showers/muddy trails down to about 5C. It lives in my downtube during the shoulder seasons.
