- Headset wont tighten after changing stem
yes i am tightening up the stem cap first, i haven’t tightened the stem bolts. but even when the top cap is tight the handlebars and spacers underneath still spin freely, the top cap is meant to pull everything tightly together isnt it?
I already have a 5mm spacer, wont I need a 2mm to take up the slack? or swap for 5mm for 7mm (if they exist)?

So, I changed my stem for a new one and now when I do up the pre-load the spacers still spin around freely and the bars/ fork still rotate freely of each other.
I have now found out my old stem was 40mm stack height and my new one is 38mm, so is this the problem.
I have 5, 10, 15 and 20mm spacers, will I need a 2mm one to make it work with this stem? Or am I missing something here?Posted 4 years ago
