Forks pressed against headtube - problem
I'm putting together a bike from mostly ebay parts and I have got it 90% working. My main issue is the forks and headset.
The frame is a Sintesi Matador and the carbon forks came supplied with it from an ebay seller, along with the integrated FSA headset. I'm not sure if there is a part missing from the headset but when I tighten the bolt on the top cap to remove the play from the forks it also seems to pull the top of the forks (just below the crown race) against the headtube causing friction and an inability to turn the forks.
I'm wondering if I'm missing a part from the FSA (Orbit CE?) integrated headset. I have the top cap and bolt, the upper cartridge bearings and the lower cartridge bearings (installed the correct way up) and the crown race. It would seem as if the cartridges aren't quite deep enough, or the crown race not big enough to prevent the forks from touching the frame.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
