Argggghhh, god damm effing bollocking stem!
Tried to install a new shorter stem tonight. Undid the stem bolts, then the top bolt into the steerer and swapped the stem over.
New stem is a touch shorter than the old one. No problem, I'll add a spacer on top for now as I don't want to chop down the steerer.
Aligned the new stem, tightened up the pinch bolts clamping to the steerer and then the top bolt. However, I cannot for the life of my manage to eliminate the play from the headset.
Bike is a Specialized Camber and the headset looks pretty simple to me and I'm certain is an integrated headset. The old stem was a Specialized own brand one with some fancy shim to adjust the rise. New stem is just a bog standard Truative jobby.
Is there anything simple I am overlooking as I'm at a loss why play remains in the headset? Ruined tonights planned ride too
