Is it possible for a headset to ovalize?
im thinking about getting a Olmo road frame to replace my Bianchi, and while its a killer frame and everything, theres a problem with the headtube. When you take the fork and turn it side to side without the wheel, you can really feel that at about a 45degree angle from straight ahead it starts to resist turning, on both sides. if you just let it go it snaps back to straight ahead. now, its owner says that he had to use slivers of aluminum can when he intalled the headset. ive never heard of an ovailzed headtube on a road bike, but is it possible. it has an italian threaded bb, so is it possible that the headtube is italian somehow as well?
