My old headset was getting a bit grindy so put a new one on at the weekend. Only having a bit of trouble getting it right.
It went on no problem, but no matter what I do I can't get rid of the play it still has in it.
Gradually doing up the top cap 1/4turn at a time, tighten the stem bolts, front brake on and rock forward but still play in it. Repeat. The only way to get rid of the play is doing up the top cap so tight that the steering is really stiff and tough, i.e. it is now too tight
I've checked taken the fork out and checked everything is the right way round (the chamfered edges inwards) but I'm now at a loss
Anyone else experienced this or thoughts on how to fix it? Any advice gratefully received.
