Or clunking on some ruts. Just started the other day, and I seem able to replicate it by locking the front brake and rocking the bike -- so, headset loosened up. I see how to tighten it up on Parks website, but before I just tighten it, anything to watch for? Bike is pretty new (3 months/850miles), so I'm a bit surprised it'd be loose; but now that I think about it, I never did go back for that initial tuneup...
Edit: While I'm asking, what is a good torque value for the stem? I looked, but did not see. Bontrager Select. I gotta justify that torque wrench that I bought...
