So I'm looking to build a new frame up. The frameset did't come with a head set. I was going to go with whatever the cheapest head set my bike shop have available, but the mechanic recommended a king. I understand that the king head set will probably last me a life time, but is it worth it? I've had my road bike for 3+ years with roughly 16k miles one it. It's still on the original generic made in china sealed bearing headset.
This mechanic always gave me great advise. I'm not concerned with weight with this build. It's hard for me to justify spending $100+ on a headset. What's your thoughts?
