    Default Phil headset?

    Haven't noticed many custom bikes being specced with Phil Woods headsets. They have cool colors and Phil bearings seem well respected. Are they lower quality than the ubiquitous Chris King or sometimes seen Cane Creek 110? Heavier? Just under the radar?

    I had one on my 44. They are great and offer a really cool look that you cannot find with CK or CC. I would highly recommend one.

    Thanks for the real world experience. I think I want a green headset and Phil seems the best option,

    They look lovely - I'd have one in a shot if I had a frame that needed one.

    Running the headset, bb and seatpost collar. Top notch. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

    I had no idea these existed and I’ve had a set of Phil hubs on my McClung for over ten years now...

    As in, "I expect to ship more bikes with these amazing units," or "I expected more out of Phil Wood."

    Thanks, Eric.

    Expect to ship more, not "I expected more". It's a nice headset.
