Customer reviews for Cane Creek 10-Series ZS44 Short Top Headset

Cane Creek 10-Series ZS44 Short Top Headset

The 10-Series has the look and feel of Cane Creek's class-leading 40-Series headsets with simpler machining and more economical materials. Designed with the upgrade path in mind, the 10-Series shares the internal geometry of Cane Creek's higher-end headsets and, as a result, replacement and upgrade parts are readily available.

Worst headset cup ever

PostedAugust 14, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: plastic headset cup
I've been in the bike industry for a long time, and this is the first time I feel like having to write a review on a bike part. The headset itself might be fine but the headset cup is made out of plastic which doesn't only seem like a bad idea, it is. After two rides the bearing pushed into the plastic cup, making the headset freeze up because of the top cap pushed against the outside of the cup.
Do yourself a favor and buy a 40 with an aluminum cap (I would have to begin with, but it was out of stock, in the future I'll just wait longer).
