Great quality headset - found the crown race tricky on a a cro-mo fork I prefer the split ring variety, but that's down to the me - the user. Really quick excellent service from Merlin - never been disappointed with their service.
A headset really needs a long term review, but after a week I can say it works smoothly and without any problems. The crown race was tricky to fit onto the fork, if in doubt, ask your local bike shop for help. Looks pretty good too.
Got this to replace the one on my spec allez, this is much smoother running and has seals in the top and bottom to stop water getting in too, I went through 2 sets of the originals in 10 months but this looks allot better, would definitely recommend.
Rock solid and tightens beautifully. Removed the play that was present in the generic unit that I had been using.
Smooth bearings and a well made robust design. Not the lightest but should last for years.
Seems like a well made headset which is a vast improvement on the original factory fitted model. Great price as well. Instructions would have been useful though, hence losing 1 star.
Quality bit of kit. Seems well made. Looks very smart for the price.
