    Is it a riser or is it a quill to A-head adaptor.

    The fact that it clamps on to the fork steerer i presume its a riser , but at the moment the top cap bolt is just spinning so i presume the star nut is also turning

    A bit more tinkering and wiping down on this one after a days worth of commuting yesterday proved successful , i noticed that not only are the brake levers are campag but so are the actual units as well , which i have never seen before .

    Fitted the matching fr trigger shifter tonight and had another look at the stem riser and the problem looks to be that the captive nut inside the star washer is just spinning , so got to work out a way of getting the old one out .

    There are a few ideas on the internet so will try one or two of them and see what happens , its still ride able at the mo which is good .

    Ten minutes and hey presto one star nut and riser have been removed.

    Lovely bikes to ride. I bought one of those a few years back on Gumtree. It came fitted with a Pace RC35 suspension fork which the owner had fitted on backwards as he didn't realise the brakes were fitted behind the fork. Needless to say the handling was awful until I turned the fork around.
