Re: Help with headset & forks please

Never said it didn’t fit through bearing it’s the cup and I didn’t ever suggest grinding the steerer tube either??

Anyway hope headset fitted today and all is good so it was an issue with the Ritchey headset not fitting!

Re: Help with headset & forks please

It’s the slight lip above the crown race that won’t pass through the headset cup.

Never had this before will have to change the headset I guess.

Weird as both headset and forks are Ritchey!

Help with headset & forks please

Hi All I just had my lbs press a Ritchey WCS external headset into a Lynskey Titanium frame. All good with the headset. I already had some Ritchey Comp Carbon forks going spare and when I got the frame home I tried to fit the forks. The steerer tube just above the crown has a lip and the lip won’t p...

Campagnolo Brake Pad Query - Help Needed Please!

I have a pair of Campagnolo skeleton brakes which came with carbon specific pads which I don't need. Issue is all of my other campy brakes have the spring clip to retain the pad as in all groupsets are current 2015.

Re: Help re Headset Fitting PLEASE!

I'm going to get the lbs to fit the star nut and they can hopefully sort the headset fitting too!

I'll do the rest from there.

Re: Help re Headset Fitting PLEASE!

Thanks for the reply and I suspected that was the case as otherwise the bottom of the bearing meets directly with the flat black part of fork crown.

I'll try and find a split one as that makes more sense.

Thanks

Ltd Edn GOLD Specialized Allez Race Build

Hi Firstly, I am fully aware I have ignored/broken the OCP rules in a number of ways but was keen to post this build anyway. Secondly, I am also aware that this is probably a marmite build where more people will hate it than like it. As such, please ignore uncut steerer, height of seatpost, crank ar...
