    Headset advice - SOLVED

    I have changed the stem on my 2014 Genesis Volant. As a result I now have a very slight looseness through the headset and I don't know why. It was not there before the change (so it is not the bearing wear). Nor is it like that Volkswagen ad, where something else is loose. The only different...

    Stem headset tightening

    Or: Am I missing the blindingly obvious? So here's the headset on the newly rebuilt bike. Notice scratches from spanner. It won't stay tight: either it is hard to steer, or the forks wobble. Sometimes, by way of variation, they do both. I'm not sure how they manage that either. A couple of...

    Strange headset issue!

    Hi all, just about completed a new build on an old frame. I noticed that my Shimano 600 headset was missing the lock washer that goes between the top race and the locking nut. When I rode the bike the headset was often loosening off, so I put this down to the missing lock washer. Anyway I bought...

    One Inch Headset Die

    Hello everyone. I have spent two years looking for suitable forks for my crash damaged Graham Weigh. I thought I was there but it turns out a small section of threads are damaged. Would this section be improved enough by running a tap down it? Does the average LBS still have such tools...

    Shimano cable stops/adjusters

    This may be a simple question with an equally simple answer but it has me struggling at the moment. Is it possible to find Shimano stops to replace the down tube levers and enable me to install STI brakes. See photo for braze on design.

    Stronglight Competition Headset

    Looking through my box of spares today l found a Stronglight Comp. headset with caged bearings. My question is "should it stay or should it go" I dont think it would be appropriate for the bikes l have right now but l suppose you never know if something suitable might appear. Its condition is...

    Headset Replacement

    Merry Christmas everyone! Currently in process of very amateur building of a TT bike. I need to get a headset. Put the bike model in on Cane Creek headest finder and it gives me these stats: Upper = IS 41/28.6 Lower = IS 41/30. Unfortunately, it doesn't go as far as actually then showing you...

    Help me find the right headset bearings

    The headset bearings on my genesis delta 10 need replacing as they are very worn. I have been searching for a week and can't for the life of me understand what I need to get. Online bike shop websites, that sell this model, suggest that the headset on the bike is an FSA Orbit C-40. I understand...

    Servicing a Headset

    I have replaced cartridge bearings before and whilst they are easy I've usually found the most difficult part is identifying then sourcing the exact one you need. The good thing about them is it's easy to tell when they need replacing as there is a noticeable shake in the steering. My Genesis...

    Changing Headsets - FSA TH857 Semi-Cartridge to Hope Conventional 1 1/8 headset

    I shall soon be swapping my headsets. I'm reasonably confident in servicing my current headset - taking it apart, greasing bearings, putting back together etc I've never changed a headset before, but I had assumed (perhaps naively) that it would just be a case of taking the current one apart...

    Headset choices

    While I've decided on most of the parts for my Pickenflick build, I'm stuck on which headset to use - or more specifically which manufacturer. Planet X build the full bike with their in house Selcof item, but my other options are the FSA version or separate upper & lower components from Crane...

    Hi All, Does anyone know if you can adjust the headset on a Boardman Team Hybrid 2016 or is it fixed? I presume I need spacers if you can? Cheers

    A 1mm 1 inch (25.4mm) headset spacer

    A 2mm is a bit thick and I could get another turn of the locknut if I had a 1mm. Anyone got one kicking around? They are not common except in kits of spacers.

    Advice needed and where better to go than here? I'm in the process of rebuilding an old Giant Cadex CFR-2 and the headset is shot. I've tried to get an original from YST (part No: HP-8311N) but unfortunately they're so far out of date even they don't have one knocking around in the basement...

    Gappy headset

    I've just put a brand new headset in and it's all gappy. It's kind of like the races don't match up with the bearings or something. I've tried bouncing it, jiggling it, rocking it, all the usual stuff to settle it in but no luck. FSA No11N, spec gives a 1mm gap betwixt fork crown and bottom cup...

    Headset bearings.

I have tried all the local bike shops and none have any that fit.So I put loose ball bearings in and packed them with grease.All is smooth for now. The shops had...
