|Hi guys! I cannot get my stem to tighten properly no matter how hard I crank the stem bolts. I have a E-90 carbon fork(with carbon steerer) Cinelli integralter and King headset. the stem just slips on the steerer tube. Can anyone help me?|

|but someone on an earlier post (in the components section) mention that alter stems (essentially the same as you and i have on our integralters) have a habit of stripping bolts that clamp the stem to the fork end.
you may look at replacing these with better specc'd items. it may be a start. mine holds up ok but ive only ever installed it and haven't touched it scince.
also check that you have the right model. i think that they may have come in 1" and 1 1/8" inch models. if so you could use a shim but i personally wouldn't be brave enough to ride with this setup.
hope this helps.

|I am using the shim that came with the stem. but thats how it acts. Although in the open position, I don't think you could fit a bigger shim. It just slides on the steerer tube once it is tight. ???????|| |
