OK, so the star nut-bolt-cap assembly for the preload adjustment popped off. Let's just say it's not going back 'in' where it should. No matter what I seem to do it tends to, well, not want to stay on.
The Aheadset website claims riding without this assembly is not dangerous, however, recommends against it. It also provides installation instructions that I'm not having success with. I see diagrams of the assemblies but they fail to include this portion of the mechanism, rather focusing on the 'guts' of machinery. It seems like there's a nut missing (?), I'm not sure.
I could and probably will run this into the LBS for a look, but it's Saturday and my main one is closed - and I want to ride. Any advice? Thanks so much.
