The Pig family is famous for being cheap and bullet-proof. The 1.5 is no exception. If you don't like bulky bearing cups, then look elsewhere. If you are building a bike from the ground up, then might I suggest something with a tapered headtube instead of a full top to bottom 1.5? If you already have that style of frame, then this is a great replacement for whatever you're rocking at the moment.
