Hard Shifting and Front End/headtube creaking
Hey folks. Earlier in the week I posted a message about my crank falling off. Thankfully, it was fixed. I finally took a ride today and observed that down shifting to harder gears/smaller cogs (or is that considered an upshift? Crap...) is rather clunky and harsh and I'm getting a lot more chain rub at the high ends. I'm running D/A with a FSA crank and those shifts seems to really slam into place. Any thoughts? It didn't seem this clunky before the crank came apart.
Lastly, the reynolds fork cap keeps loosening. I hand tighten it (Its an ouzo pro), but loosens again after a long ride or two. This didn't occur until after the shop adjusted the headset. Can't figure it out. And today, I noticed some creaking when I turned the bars/front end (but not while on the road). It almost sounds like something is too tight. Thoughts?
Thanks for your diagnosis!
