No matter what type of bike product your buying, from the simple accessories through to the full setup of your custom built road bike, there are lots of important considerations that you should take into account, especially when you’re shopping online and unable to test the product first. This is especially true when you’re buying products like Headsets.

Our aim is simple, help you get the very best products for your budget. Whether that’s FSA Orbit CE Headset (No.8B) or an alternative, we’ll do our best to find you unbiased, genuine customer reviews to help you make your decision. We’ve found 159 different products in the Headsets category at Chain Reaction Cycles and we’ve also managed to find 151 products from FSA (although only 28 of the 151 are in the Headsets category).

Our first piece of advice is for you to spend some time really getting to know what it is you’re looking for. An important feature for one person might be totally pointless and irrelevant to you, so get a good idea of what you want and need from your Headsets. Note down this list of key features that your product must have, that way when you’re comparing alternatives you have a starting point to decide whether one product meets your needs or not.

Price is the next and probably one of the most important factors of a purchase, so it’s really worthwhile spending a bit of time analysing the price of FSA Orbit CE Headset (No.8B) and seeing how it stacks up against those offered by different brands or even other alternatives from FSA. Below we’re going to get into the detail of FSA Orbit CE Headset (No.8B) to help you see how the prices stack up.

We start this price analysis by looking at the price you can expect to pay for Headsets. There are 159 different products available at Chain Reaction Cycles, and of those 159, the average price is £29.40. There’s quite a variance in price in this category too with the lowest priced product we found at £0.99 and most expensive was £160.

The next stage we went on to, was to look at the price of products from the brand: FSA. The average price was £82.13 and we found that the price varies right from as little as £2.95 up to £849 with FSA products.

And finally we thought it would be good to give you an idea of FSA products that appear specifically in the Headsets category. So you can see that the price of FSA Orbit CE Headset (No.8B) at £22.5 is great value considering the average price of FSA Headsets is £22.52 and the price varies from £2.99.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that we managed to find FSA Orbit CE Headset (No.8B) during our price scan of several cycle retailers, for the amazing price of £22.5 which represents a £7.45 or 25% saving against RRP. If you think FSA Orbit CE Headset (No.8B) ticks all of your boxes in terms of quality and features then it’s more than likely going to be a winner bearing in mind the price.
