Caad 10 stem and headset

Postby vespario » Sat Dec 15, 2012 18:48 pm

Hi,

Was taking spacers out of my headset to drop handlebars and I now can't get it all tight again. There are 4 lead looking pieces with a band round them that have separated from the top cap and am not sure how to reassemble. That bit just seems to drop inside to the bottom?

I had this issue with a 2009 cannondale synapse. From memory, the fsa fork bung has a cone shaped bottom part that once tightened forces the 4 lead looking parts into the fork. Once i had removed it to adjust the spacers, it never seemed to hold tight. The set up should look like this with a bolt holding the top cap and lower part together

After all the trouble I had with it it went in the bin and I purchased this

Would be worthwhile looking at the bearings to make sure the ring that sits between the inner bearing and fork (sorry don't know the official name) is in place. After a lot of felting I also realised that the headset should be tightened befor the stem bolts!
