Any place that sells bearings... I prefer to use quality bearings like SKF for example. They are more expensive but they are smoother and last longer than cheap ones.

If I ever see a flat rider do a hop-to-wallride, my head would explode.

Most headset bearings are the same, they probably all come from the same factory..

Kink is one of the few BMX brands to offer a high-end ceramic headset.

Quote from: KINK website
The Integrated II Ti-Ceramic headset features titanium nitride coated bearing races and ceramic ball bearings for lighter weight, longer lasting and smoother spinning bearings. The headset also includes a tall CNC machined dust cover cap, and three assorted size color matched stack spacers to get the perfect stem height. This headset fits all integrated campy style frames


They are very expensive ($100) compared to a regular headset, I don't know if it's worth the extra money.
