Simple question here. Bottom line is my headset is either a little loose but spins properly, or normally tightened down but doesn't even a full rotation. It's 2 weeks old and I have a couple spacers in there, my friend was telling me to take out a spacer and it should tighten down properly, but I don't see how that would make any difference scince my compression bolt clearly tightens into my front properly. Any ides besides repacking the bearings ?


Sorry for 2 sudden threads, got bitched at last time for posting more then one thread per day.**

It's all about finding the "happy medium" just tighten it enough to take the play out of it. I should follow my own words, I tighten the piss out of mine but it still spins good haha

Yepp, which is why I tighten the piss out of mine to make sure I won't ovalize my headtube. New bearings > New frame

Fork and headtube are definitely not bent.

I rode without a headset bearing for a week. LOL everytime the front would lift off I would hear it cracking into the frame, Meh oh well the frames a piece of shit.
Anyways play with spacers add spacers/ take them out.

if it is only solid when it doesn't spin and you cant find a happy medium maybe you need an extra spacer

I was going to make make a topic about a headset but, I'll end up stealing this one.
Quick question..
Is the odyssey integrated headset in hot pink the same thing as the fluorescent pink one?
and will it match the Arron Ross pink grips?

Yes, it's the same thing. Yes, it will match but Aaron Ross grips are possibly one of the worst grips you can buy.

ohh okay thanks... I have the Aaron Ross grips and they feel fine to me but, they do look like they wear off a bit fast.
You think the odi longneck in pink is the same color as the hot pink headset?

try tightnening a bit where you think it is good and spins. then tighten your stem all the way then try tightening the compression bolt again.
