Chris King's New DropSet 6 Headset is Built for Abuse
@BrambleLee: If 2010 was the only blip on the ol' CV, I would agree.

Chris King's New DropSet 6 Headset is Built for Abuse
@barp: I went with White Industries on my recent build. Easy to service. Spare parts are always available. Full gamut of freehubs available (which are also titanium!), and Sean is a pleasure to deal with; always picks up the phone and happy to answer questions! Fantastic company. Have had good experiences with Hope too (but their seat clamp design is a massive turd).

@thustlewhumber: Same, no complaints about quality of the product—I just hope I don't need parts!

Chris King's New DropSet 6 Headset is Built for Abuse
@racecase: Yeah and they stopped making Campagnolo freehubs. And Singlespeed hubs. And the amazing stainless singlespeed cogs. And spare parts for those hubs. I get the economics of focusing on what sells most; but that wasn't why I spent a premium on Chris King stuff. Other hub manufacturers have a better track record for longer term support and supporting more niche stuff IMO.

Chris King's New DropSet 6 Headset is Built for Abuse
It is kind of funny to hear Chris King talk about their "patented GripLock" tech. Didn't Chris King essentially avoid using a tapered split ring when it was protected by the Aheadset patent, and use an inferior o-ring design (for years) that scored steerer tubes? And conveniently, when that patent expired in 2010, guess what showed up in their headsets.

Forge & Bond Release New Budget-Minded Thermoplastic Wheelset
@mountainsofsussex: My experience with Bitex has been very weak springs and regular skipping from day one, and I am not that heavy or hard on gear. Would not buy again.

Hope Announces More XCR Pro Brake Options
I am wondering, for those two have tried both, how does the lever shape compare between the Tech4 and XCR pro? Any preferences? I was planning on picking up a set of the Tech4s next month for a downcountry-ish build and the Tech 4 lever shape looked pretty big a lot less familiar to me compared to my old Hope X2 race brakes (which have a similar shape to XTR). I am assuming that is the reason for the increase in power?
