Canyon headbearings

Has anybody out there had problems with Canyon headset bearings? Mine are totally shot and was surprised that Canyon want £70 just for the replacements just two small bearings. I nearly fell on the floor. On investigation ive found quite a number of people who have experienced the same problem with such low mileages too. It looks like a case of poor quality components. Far removed from the German workmanship and attention to detail the country is famed for. In my experience keep away from canyon bikes...

I got about 7,000 miles out of my Inflite8 8 CX before changing the headset bearings.
Not too bad for the on/off road use the bike gets, I don't think.
A mate changed them for me, but I can't remember how many £££ they cost.
 
Unless they are some weird size any decent bike shop should be able to fit them for not much money;a Deda headset is only about £25.

To be fair they are not difficult to fit.

As above, there usually standard taper steerer on Canyon.

So if its a taper you just buy them.
Or as above if you take them out and get the sizes

Thanks mate. Just sent them an email to see if they have the relevant bearings. So much cheaper than Canyon. They are a bloody rip off.!
