Just back from a ride, took my bike to the lbs this morning and they took care of everything. Turns out that I was missing a part for the headset, the crown race. It was stuck on the old fork, I saw it on there, but covered in grease it looked like it was apart of the aluminum steerer, so I didnt give it a second thought as being part of the headset assembly. I looked at the FSA generic headset instructions online, and several models did not use this part(crown race) so I assumed I had one that didnt need it.
While I was at the LBS I got an Ultegra chain and Deda grey bar tape.
I went for my first ride today with the new fork and it definitly smooths out the ride.
