    A word of warning to the unknowledgeable..(me). The economies to price mentioned on their web site for this headset appear to be in the water-proofing of the bottom ball race. It isn't! Failure to dismantle and re-grease after two years of use will cause it to rust up and stop working!
    If you do make the same mistake as me, the ball race can be dismantled. the seal can be lifted out with a knife. Make sure you do this over a bowl or a sink that you can take the u-bend off of (very useful in my case). I cleaned it all out with a scotch cloth and re-greased it. It should last until I can get a new head set. Ihave not been able to find anyone who can sell be a ball race.
