II have a ridged mountain bike and I have a problem with the headset on it
It shakes from side to side when I am cycling and I have to keep both hands on the handle bars to steer it straight
What is the cause of this I guess that it has got something to do with the bearings in it
A bike mechanic told me I needed a new headset, but that he did not have any because of the current chain supply problem. He said if I could get the component he would fit it. I can get them on Amazon, only I don't know what sort I need to get. I suspect it's a 1 1/8".
I noticed that the headset on my Roubaix is a bit loose when I rock the bike back and forth with front brake on. I loosened the two screws on the side but when I try to tighten the screw on the top , it is already quite tight so what do I do ?
What a circus. This bike is chinamade and it have been a circus. First time I have a carbon steerer tube and I guess it's finished after 1 month of riding.
Whatever I do the damn thing rocks back and forward,here is pictures. I don't even know where the thing is supposed to sit. Push it down...
There's a lot of play on my son's front fork, it's a Carrera Parva, I think 2018 as I bought it in October 2018. I've greased and tightened it but it's still there so suspect the bearings.
Here's pictures, one top one bottom. The bearings seem to be cartridge style but I can't get them...
I'm afraid the Record Ace frame has to go - it was a brilliant project through lockdown last summer and you can see the build thread here which gives a good idea of where it came from and what it has been through. It has been replaced so offering for £60 posted or slightly less for local pickup...
Think the issue is at the bottom of the fork the bearing ring isn't seating properly and no matter how tight the top cap thing is theres always play in the headset rocking back and forward holding breaks. Any ideas? Also not sure where this rubber washer goes.
As per my other threads I'm using this bike as a project to get to learn more about maintenance. Saying that at the rate I'm spending money I could have got a new bike! But hey I'm learning a lot.
So next up is to replace the headset.
Looking at this it has a 1 1/8 Aheadset
So I've been...
Having a nightmare fitting a headset to my restored 1970s Holdsworth Mistral frame and would welcome some sage advice please. Bike shop tried to fit my standard Campag Record NOS headset - crown race too small for the fork crown. Advised by bike shop that I needed a JSI headset. Obtained a...
I believe this is the headset I need for this bike

The lead time is a couple of weeks, does anyone have any idea where I could get something similar
Just a quick query ... refinishing a frame. Have removed the headset bearing cups and now want to reinstall in the frame. I've seen people using tools and jigs for this on YouTube, but is it OK just to use a couple of wood blocks and a hammer to tap the cups into place? Happy to make up a jig...
Dear fellow cyclists,
I've replaced an OEM 60MM STEM for a shorter one (35MM) and realised my front headset was a bit wobbly. I've tightened it up now by hand using an Allen key, and realised I might need to purchase a torque wrench.
I have a hard tail MTB with front suspension locked out...
my ribble cgr sl ‘rocks’ slightly with front brake applied.
i’ve tried tightening the headset with the bolt through the top cap, but makes no difference.
anything simple that can be done before i hand it over to the lbs to fix?
The wife's new bike (Wilier) came with an expander plug for the steerer tube and I'm struggling to get any sort of 'load' onto the headset bearings - I can't see an obvious way for it to compress, I assumed it must pull down the top cap after it had expanded and you then nipped it up but I can...
I ‘be just stripped my headset bearings on my 2016 Giant Defy Advanced 2 bike, only to find I am missing some ball bearings in the bottom bearing set.
i think the bike takes an overdrive 2 road bike kit MH 137 bearing, which I could buy, but would prefer to just replace the ball bearings...
I've been out cleaning and greasing my seat post and pedal threads hoping they'll remove a creak before a 30 miler tomorrow evening and thought I'd look at another minor issue I have - the front headset has slight movement in it. If I hold the front brake and rock the bike it has a little play...
The bearings in my forks and headset are probably smooshed. I'm getting creaking during riding and when out of the saddle a distinct 'knock-knock' when i rock the handlebars.
Bike is a B'Twin Ultra 700 AF and from here reckons:
"The steering uses long-life, sealed bearings, with a 1⅛" diameter...
So I've got a B Twin triban 520 flat bar which I use fairly regularly now and I've put 700 miles or so on it. When hill climbing, and rocking the bike (pulling on the bars) the headset creaks every time I alternate between left and right pedal strokes. I can replicate the noise when the...
Had a new Liv bike for 5 days and on day 3 the headset started squeaking like mad. Anytime I turn the handlebars slightly.
the shop I bought it from is nearly 2 hours away......would the local Giant shop be likely to sort it for me or I’d it something I can sort out easily myself? Is it a...
In the process of turning my old bike into a fun, super fast road hybrid that no one wants to steal. So far I've replaced the front and rear shifter, rear wheel, brake pads, new casette, tyres. All spanking brand new stuff on an old bike, it's great fun. Test ride yesterday and there's...
Hi, I haven't posted on Cyclechat for ages, but am in need of some advice. I was advised to fit a longer stem to my bike after a bike fit at my lbs. The stem they sold me was a Giant contact but had a larger diameter than my aluminium steerer tube, so they fitted a steerer tube shim to reduce...
I’m trying to replace the headset on my 2005 Trek 1000SL and I’m not finding it easy.
According to the specifications it is a semi-integrated headset but I can’t identify the correct replacement as the Cane Creek online tool doesn’t list my bike. I got the top bearings out fine, they’re 24...
I just got this Kona Dew Plus frame.
The internal diameter of the head tube is 34mm. I was wondering if anyone could help me pick the right headset for this frame ?
I thank you all in advance for your help!
Campagnolo, I think mid 1990s, no obvious name on it.
If anyone can identify the model and even better tell me the stack height it would be greatly appreciated .
The stack seems to be 43mm ish, but as a fork needs to be cut down, i’d like to be sure:smile:
