Have you installed the Tapered Ring?
Page2Posted 4 years ago
I have been on a relentless quest to sort this and posted a thread about it but it still remains unsolved.
Ive got a new Cotic Soul frame with tapered headtube, with a 1 1/8 steerer Revelations with a hope reducer and hope mix headset.
There is some wobble in the headset if I rock the bike forward with the front brake on. Its done up tight and has been retightened at least 10 times since I built the bike, trying to resolve it.
I have the right amount of spacers and the sfn is low enough.
Any other answers? Am I supposed to be able to pop hope bearings in and out with my hands? I have the 3 spacers above the bearings on the top as well.
Thanks in advance, this is so annoying.Posted 4 years agorobowns wrote:
Ive got the spacers below the stem then my top cap directly on top of the stem. Its probably a 2-3mm above the top of the steerer. Ive tried other configs, ie a smaller spacer below and a little spacer on top leading to the same gap.
Hmm – do you have another spacer you could fit?Posted 4 years agoDavesportSubscriber
Nothing on the outside should be seen to be moving whilst rocking the bike back & forth with the front brake applied when you headset is installed correctly
Numpty question I know (Just to ask again) Have you installed the crown race on the fork. The exact crown race that came with the headset.

Yep. If you look under the top cap you’ll see that there’s a little “step”. There has to be enough height difference for that to fit into and then a bit more for taking up all the bearing preload. It may be that you just don’t have enough space?
Having said that, this could all be a load of pish but it’s hard to tell without seeing it and I’m just trying to go by your description.Posted 4 years ago
