'Luminum or steel headset?
One of my bikes needs a new threadless headset. Am I missing the boat here, or shouldn't a headset have steel bearing races and cups? I think I want steel for durability, but almost all of the threadless are made of aluminum.
What gives? Is it just weight issues, or is aluminum a better metal for headsets?
