you might be tightening your compression bolt too much. or if you have an unsealed headset your bearings might be crushed

bearings could still be broken. or your tightening your compression bolt too much. tighten it just enough so theres no play

dont oil bearings. oil pretty much ruins the grease in the bearings. yyou only grease bearings. never oil

i had the same problem, i had the compression bolt to tight, its trial and error, if its too loose you will have play but if its to tight they wont spin smoothly

wen you say "i oiled my head set" do u mean like WD-40? cus that wont work, u gotta take it apart and use thick grease like pensoil or something

i suggest you take everything apart, clean everything up real good, inspect the bearings and if they are good put it back together(with grease) and do the trial and error, its really annoying
