Loose ball/retainer headset installation
I bought a cheap Tange headset to install on a bike, and it came with retainer cages instead of loose balls. In the instructions, it says to install both retainers with the flat sides facing up into the cups. I'm used to repacking old headsets with loose balls, so I've never actually installed a retainer before, but it seems like the flat side should be down on the race. I tried assembling it very loosely without grease, and it seems like that should be right(opposite the instructions)....am I missing something , or are the instructions just wrong?
