A newbie question here: what is ovalization of the head tube and how can I prevent it?


My Zurich has an ovalized main tube...Tower

basically make sure your headset is tight enough, but not too tight or you'll crush the bearings. if you are newbie you may not know how to do that. Have your shop take care of it for you. It is not an active thing you have to worry about. Typically you adjust your headset and you are done with it, thats basically it. Hope that helps.
