burly

got this for my double crown fork and i cannot complain. it is the biggest one i have ever seen. works just fine, I had to put some torque on the headcap after the first 2 runs, but works fine now. and I did not have trouble setting the crown race.

Pros: tough, burly, innexpensive (dont let that fool you, its cheaper to make this type of product vs light weight and small)

Cons: ugly
large (if you are going from a regular headset to a large one like this, its like another 7 mm taller than most)

Would Buy Again: Yes

Tough!

Heavy and strong. This sucker is built for abuse and it shows. Does exactly what you would expect and the price can't be beat.

Pros: Price. Durability

Cons: Heavy

Burly Headset

Bombproof headset! The oversized lower bearing is nice and sturdy. Has been smooth and fault free for 2 years. I didn't have a problem mounting the race like the other reviewers. Maybe a quality control thing. The deep cup size was a cause for concern when removing from older frame, but that depends more on the frame. It is a tad heavy.

Pros: Strength and sturdiness, trouble free and easy install.

Cons: Weight, deep cup design, boring design. If you want the wow factor get a CK!

Burly headset!

I installed an FSA Pig DH Pro on my retro style BMX rig. It has much larger lower bearings than a standard headset which provides extra strength. This is confidence instilling for doing stair gaps and other aggressive riding. The logos are kind of ugly, but if I had wanted pretty, there are pretty headsets out there (Chris King or Woodmans). I got black, so I can't say anything to the glossiness of the silver version.

After installing, the headset is smooth and silent and solid-feeling like it ought to be.

Like another reviewer here, I had some initial difficulty pressing the crown race plate using the Park Tools Crown Race Setter. It was impossible until I took my fork to a shop to cut what turned out to be 0.1 mm off of the crown race. Afterward, it still took a couple of serious wangs from a hammer to set the plate. The crown race plate works with a standard fork, but seems to be a tighter fit than others I've used.

Pros: High quality oversize bearings
Pressed in perfectly with a faced frame
Good performance for a lowish price

Cons: Crown race required preparing the fork where other headsets I've used were more forgiving
Not the prettiest thing I've stuck on a bike

hard to mount

I had trouble with the bearing plate that goes on the fork. I've mounted dozens of headsets over the years, and this is the first one I've had trouble installing. The hole in the back plate was slightly undersized, and I couldn't get it to go all the way to the base of the fork without mounting it in a 10 ton press. It usually doesn't take more than a few taps with a plastic mallet.

It does work fine, though. No problems in the two years I've had it.
