i bought a 2nd hand bike, which when i bought, the headset had to be done up unbeleiveably tight to stop the play and made the steering really tight. so i overhauled it and bought new bearings for it etc which sorted it out as treat. ive jsut bought a new stem which has a smaller stack so i bought another spacer for it, but it has silly amounts of play in it and no matter how tight i do it up, it wont go. any ideas? do i need a new headset?
