Giant Trance X3 2011 Headset play.

Postby andymc06 » Mon Dec 10, 2012 17:15 pm

There's a bit of movement in the front end of my 2011 Trance X3 which I reckon is down to the headset. Could anyone please advise as to how to remedy this.

Also what type of headset would be required if it needs replacing? It's a tapered headtube with a 1.5 inch steerer.

Thanks in advance.

Andy

I have undone the stem bolts and re-tensioned the headset if that's what you mean?

Sort of - there is more to it than retensioning, the top bolt adjusts the bearings. Can you not remove the play with it?

Managed to adjust it today. Seems to have sorted it.
