StarStarStarStarStar Grand Cru headset is so sleek and perfect for my build

Ownership: a few weeks
Tech Knowledge: high

I love the finish, looks very sheen and a great classic addition to my vintage restoration build. Smooth bearings, easy install, as any 1" threaded setups go.

Easy to install.
Sealed Bearings

Other Thoughts

Install on tandem after previous headset failed. This should be a real test of endurance as tandems are know to be hard on headsets. At least I should only have to replace the bearing set. Unfortunately, winter has set in and have not been able to use yet.

For a sealed headset the VO grand Cru 1" can't be beat in my mind. This was the best price I could find on the internet and it installed very easy.

Other Thoughts

On the VO website it offers this headset in 3 different metal finishes, it would have been nice to have those options on the site here. But the silver works out fine for me.

Not a King or Record.

I forgot about it so.. that's a good thing. No trouble or readjustments. Modern Bike is solid too.
