Weird Fork Stick Problem with my roadie
So I've finally come across a problem I'm not quite sure how to fix. I just installed a Ritchey WCS Carbon fork onto my bike with an FSA integrated headset. For some reason the fork seems to "stick" when i ride it. The sticking makes the handling very jumpy and very difficult to maneuver. When there is no weight applied on the fork (i.e. im just lifting up the front of the bike) the fork turns quite nice and easily.
The FSA headset uses sealed bearings. Perhaps I have the bears set wrong? Or maybe I need to oil something? Any ideas would be appreciated.
