Flipped Stem & Noticed Problem!
Hi to all,
I have flipped my stem in order to see if a slightly longer reach is more comfortable, and undid the four screws holding the handlebars fine. I also undid the two on the other end of the stem, holding it to the steerer, and finally the screw on the steerer to take the stem off. However, now when reinstalling it once flipped, there seems to be a gap between the FSA ring and the part below (see pic). When I tried to initially tighten the screw on the top it clicked, and now has tightened a bit further but not reduced the gap - is this normal?
The gap here leads to the bike rocking if holding the front brake on and trying to move forward.
Cheers in advance!
A slightly concerned James!
