Strip the bearings, it’s most likely to be them if nothing else is obviously catching (check cables haven’t got tangled). Posted 6 years ago alexpalacefanSubscriberGotta be the bearings, take it apart and check ’em.APF Posted 6 years ago thebunkMemberJust got the bike out to replace a broken shifter, and the steering feels really notchy and stiff – it was fine when I put it away a couple of weeks ago (I’ve been ill!)Headset is about 5 months old, sealed bearings etc, so I’m a bit baffled as to how notchyness could have set in so quickly, especially as it was completely fine before.Any ideas before I strip the headset?
