Chris King has and will continue to manufacture great cycling products that are easy to maintain and keep it's appeal and value throughout the many years of owning it. I always revert back to going with their hubs and headsets.
The limited production colors are great!
I mean really, how often do you turn your handlebars on your bike. If you are like me, often. Theres no straight path in life. King headsets arent just about cool colors, theyre about taking an essential component and making it bomb proof. Blindfolded, you can feel the difference between Chris King and much cheaper headsets.
Ive had Chris King headsets on numerous bikes over the years. Their quality and commitment to their craft, environment, employees, and customers is what keeps me coming back. That and of course they make rad product that is reliable, durable, serviceable, and looks sharp. Good things!
