Hi, probably a bit of a strange concern in this regard. But I’m building a bike for the first time and yesterday fitted the headset. My worry as it was too easy.
Building a Dmr sled, checked the website and headset specs and I’m sure it’s the right one. Watched all these videos about needing a headset press or being very careful with a hammer. Mine just clicked into place with a smidge of thumb pressure. Feels fine but I’m worried it went in so easily. Anyone else had this experience?
What he said, did you install a headset, or just bearings? A lot of frames now have the bearing races machined into the frame so no need for cups to be pressed in. Its both lighter and cheaper as the headtube needs machining anyway and saves labour on the assembly line.
