    I have a Dawes 301, at it has an a adjustable joint where the stem and headset meet, inside the joint there are a series of teeth that hold the stem at the angle you want. ive tightened up all the bolts but there is still some movement on the "up/down" axis.

    any ideas how to fix this?

    Assuming the stem angle is fixed on the stem and is not the issue, then unless I have misunderstood your question your headset is loose? If so you might want to read the section on "Headset Adjustment - Threadless Type" near the bottom of this page.
