    Chris King Perdido equivalent?

    What other brand headset would be equivalent to the Chris King zero stack Perdido? I want to build a top shelf XC rig but the frame I'm considering takes 44mm cups (Zero Stack). I don't know of anybody here that can ream the head tube for a Perdido so that's out of the question. Thanks!

    I wouldn't say it's equal seeing as King doesn't actually produced the Perdido...but I've had great luck with my FSA Orbit Z.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've owned FSA SLK cranks/Mega EXO for my road bike and an FSA bb for my mountain bike. Unlike you, I've had nothing but bad luck with FSA. Maybe headset bearings are different.

    ive had two different orbit headsets, and they've both been money. i've got zero complaints about either. silky smooth, reliable and ****ing light. my orbit mx was 60cdn and within five grams of a king.
    i dunno about super long term durability, but all i can say is that ive been running an orbit x on my fix for about three years and ive never had a problem with it. still as smooth as the day i installed it.
