    Which is the better? Is the extra cost for a Chris King actually worth it?

    HOPE as if you use CK on forks 100mm and above they start to cut through your steerer tube 😯 and you can buy 2 Hope one’s for the price of the CK 😉

    Just a quick Google not read any of this but http://www.socaltrailriders.org/forum/workshop/31196-chris-king-headset-vs-acros.html http://www.singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/king-headset-scoring-fact-or-myth I’ve also see 4 or 5 of my mates take them of there bikes as the alloy steerer has a mark were there was none before the ck headset was fitted. Mr ck says it’s all down to poor fitting of headset, But will sell you a upgrade kit 😯 In my own mind I would rather buy a British product made for British conditions, Rather than something that was designed for Short travel forks 😉

    Ps this only seems to be on single crown forks
