    syncros Hardcore Headset, purchase?

    Hi, just wanted to know if the Syncros Hardcore headset is worth getting. I can pick it up for about $30. I have an '01 Specialized Enduro FSR, fox vanilla r fork. Would this be better then the Aheadset I currently have on now? Should I buy it, or is there something similar I can get.
    Thanks for your time,
    Josh

    I bought a Syncros headset 1 1/2 years ago. It's creaking like crazy.
    I don't think it should be doing that. Gonna get it lubed soon. But I
    don't know if I'd get another.

    Remember, you always get what you paid for and a $30.00 headset usually means trouble. Just save up and get a King.

    the syncros hardcore headset retails for $120... universalcycles.com's got it for $100.

    joshe: i was going to order it from the same guy you're probably going to get it from, but he only ships to the states.

    Thanks for the quick replies! What is an average price of a King? I was reading reviews for the syncros, and they were mixed. Some said it was great, equal to a king, but some said not. I don't want to waste money.
    Thanks though!
    Josh.

    Too much. I like FSA pig DH sets. ...cheap and very strong. This is one of the few items where you can save a tonne and not worry about fragility.

    $30 for a $100 headset's a pretty good deal. i wouldn't exactly call that wasting your money.

    king's usually retail for a little bit more than the syncros. you can usually find them for $120 or so. on ebay you can find some for $80-100.
