Crown Race and Lower Bearing Spacing on Integrated headset??
I am a newbie... and I am sure this is an easy question, put I just want to double check!
I am installing a new carbon fork and Cane Creek IS6 headset on my bike (yes the frame/head tube are compatible). When I put the crown race on the steerer tube it slid easily until it was approx. 5m from the fork crown and I worked it down the rest of the way by hand. When I put the lower bearing on it also stops at the same spot, about 5mm above the fork crown, but doesn't easily slide down any further. I assume that this is where a slide hammer or pipe come into play, but i wanted to make sure the lower bearing wasnt suppose to slide all the way down.. before I force it down further.. Also is there any risk of damaging the bearing cartridge?
Thanks for the advice!
