Lizard Skins

Fo' sho' they work on swing arms and chain stays but not sure about anywhere else, I have religiously had one fitted to my lower headset cup but it doesnt seem to have done too much as the bearings were in a sorry state. Just had a new headset fitted, a chris king courtesy of my g/f, and obviously want to look after it, so to "skin" of not to "skin' is my question.

No to Skins.

You wouldnt wrap a wet bit of materal around your chain and leave it so why do it to a headset...

BTW chris king are very good.

Definately skins off:

1 - what gets in stays in & stays damp. Engineers call this grinding paste! Sad

2 - you've got a King H/S & you want to cover it up? 8)

Yeah I have heard they are a bad idea, especially on shocks.
