Top Cap Advice

by 02curtisb   August 24, 2012  

Hi All,

I have a slight wobble just at the top of my headtube, Its only about 2-3mm laterally but its annoying! Crying Ive checked that the fork isnt preventing the top cap compressing but i think it may be the top cap itself.

Mine is an M:Part cheap one, which just has one nut to expand it, ive been told that some top caps have two nuts, one to expand it in the steerer tube and one to compress everything. Is that true and if so could someone kindly point out a top cap which does have that function! I think that may solve the wobble as i cant get everything (spacers, headset etc.) quite compressed enough!

You might find that you top cap does have a compression facility, try a larger Allen key in the top cap, and see if it unscrews from the expansion nut part of the top cap!
