Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Headset stiffening up a lot
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
So as of recent whenever I leave my bike out for even like 30 mins the headset seems to stiffen up quite a bit and makes it hard to turn. Is this normal or do I have excess moisture in there that's freezing or something? (I'ts been in the tens here)

ten degree steel (or worse aluminum) will freeze water faster than you can post a "stiffening headset" thread :D
take it apart, clean it, grease it, and spray wd-40 on the internals before assembling to delay any future moisture/freezing.
glad I live in california: I heard it got down into the 40's in san diego!
those people might have frozen to death! :eek:
