A MOWA headset. These seem to be decent enough. I don't know much about headsets in particular. I tend to shop by price comparison. In other words...
"Hey there's a headset that costs $15 but appears to retail for $70, therefore it must be a good headset, especially for the money. I shall buy it." I am a regular fount of Vulcan logic.
Yup, that's my secret to shopping for some bicycle parts.
The red will contrast nicely with the frame colour though.

And I also got a 9 speed short-cage rear derailleur that I am excited about. Great price, decent shape. Since I am going with a single ring up front I am told that a short-cage will suit nicely. Had thought I would go with an IGH but instead I will do that with my aluminum frame, making it even more winter-suitable. The Pake will be for everything else.
Really all I need now are forks and I am away to the races (figuratively). Have my eye on the All-City Nature Boy set, which I think will bring things together nicely.
This build should have happened over winter...oh well...its back on the burners again.
