let's just say that someone decided to take their mountain bike fork off and didn't look to see how the headset was put together. we won't name any names *ahem*.
info: 1 1/8" threadless fork. external headset.
i looked on park tool's site and it did a fair job of explaining how to put it back together except for two things
the part near the bottom explaining headset installation
which race is the cone side, which side is the cup side? I'm assuming the cup side is the headtube side. [for purposed of knowing which orentation to put the bearings back in... since one side of the bearing is more open than the other]
there are three spacers that go on top of the fork, one that's about 10mm and two that are about 5mm each. what's the point in this? why would there not just be one big one or two 10mm ones? does it matter how they are stacked together?
ok I think that covers all my questions.
thanks in advance guys! :-D I'll just be drinking a beer until I can ride again
oh wait, that's assuming that I was the one that took their fork off
