I recently shipped my bike across the country and upon getting it ready to ride, I noticed a gap between the crown race and the headtube. Maybe it was always there and in my negligence I just didn't notice (at first when I heard noise from my headset which is what made me examine it - I later retightened the bolts and the sound was gone). Just wanted to know if this is as it should be.
Lastly, I noticed theres a spacer above my headset which doesnt even come into contact with the steerer tube (the stem fits flush on the tube) It's a mystery why my lbs would have put it there unless my headset is indeed improperly adjusted.
Anyways thanks for any help.
