    Clicking Integrated Headset

    I bought a great new Ti road bike with an integrated headset. After several months of riding it I started hearing a clicking noise coming from the front end when I climb out of the saddle, (I could also re-create the noise when shfting preasure back and forth to the handlebars). I bought a new FSA headset, installed it and the noise went away. That was two months ago and now the noise is back.
    what must I do to to keep this thing quiet???

    Perhaps the bearings and headtube are not matching up properly. Read what the folks at Chris King have to say for integrated headsets. http://www.chrisking.com/pdfs/Int%20...0Explained.pdf

    They say you can pack the headset full of grease regularly to help keep it quiet.
