Lemond integrated headset adjustment issue(2 posts)

Lemond integrated headset adjustment issueEW
Jan 16, 2004 8:44 PM
I am having a little difficulty with adjusting the integrated headset (Cane Creek standard) on my Lemond Ti. Either just a little too tight or a bit too loose. Tried taking stem, spacers (20 mm) and fork apart and putting back together. Any suggestions?

What criteria are using to decide that the adjustment is "too tight"? To avoid damage, there must be NO play in the headset. Unless there is enough drag to keep the fork from turning freely, then it's not too tight. I'd try riding the bike a few miles with the headset a bit tight and see if it doesn't loosen up.
