Has anyone tried this new part out from king?  I have alot of creaking going on in the headset of my hardtail so I'm going to order one.  It also has a couple snags in the handling, but the bearings feel good. King should just give these to people that already spent $130 on they headset.  This is more of a recall than an upgrade in my opinion. Just by offering this part as a fix for long travel-slack headtube bikes is admitting their old headsets have problems.  Lucky for us there are tons of great headsets available these days for alot cheaper than king can offer.  I have a cane creek on my trail bike and its way smoother than my 2 king sets.  If your buying a new headset these days I wouldn't recommend king at all.  If your having problems like me with your old king than try this part out for $30.
