- how to fix a loose lower headset cup?
hi,Posted 3 years ago
im tarting up an old steel frame of reasonable good quality but have realised the lower headset cup is loose.its been moving about combined with a little corrosion so is no longer a tight fit.its a steel frame and not worth lots of money investing in it but i wondered if i could use a vice to perhaps nip the headset tube or the cup itself to make it slightly of round and then it would hopefully grip a little better?
anyone else doe this or any other ideas?
I’ve used Araldite Rapid Steel adhsive for this exact problem. Worked perectly. Headset cup can still beremoved from frame (will probably need sanding to remove the adhesive but not a big issue). Bearing rreataining compund might work, but if the gap is too much, it might not be as effective as the above.Posted 3 years ago
