How do I remove play in my Camp Hiddenset headset (C'dale frame+fork)? When I hold the brake the fork jiggles a little.

Thanks,
Andrew

Loosen the stem bolts, tighten the top cap to remove the play, and then tighten the stem bolts to specification. That should do it.

If you still have problems with the headset loosening after your adjustment and the stem that you are using now has only one clamping bolt. You may want to change to a two bolt clamp style like the a Ritchey or Deda Newton. I was using the TTT Forgie and couldn't stop the headset from loosening. I have the Newton now and everything is fine. Something about Carbon steerer tubes and single bolt stems don't work in my book.
