I'll probably get a Head Doctor or the Chris King version when i get the new bike, as even though the headset was fitted by the shop it has started creaking already and i think it is because the star nut isn't straight. Should get it sorted under warrantee though, will find out on Tuesday.

How do you get them out then Buzz?

I don't like that, means i can't keep the Chris King top cap. If i go that way i'll defo get the Chris King one i think.

Edit: It appears CK don't do anything like the Head Doctor ??) I can't find it anyway Undecided

It does not really matter if you have a hed doctor or similar or star fangled nut, personally i go for the star option, it is not massively critical if its not in straight as there is quite a bit of play in the topcap for the bolt to bolt into. unless you have a carbon steerer tube .
