    2010 stumpjumper fork install question....can some post the proper sequence of the fork install? i think i have the thin metal spacers in the wrong place.. or can post a link to a picture schematic.. the reason why i am asking is that i got bike right out of the box and had to assemble it. and they forgot to send the manual and something does not seem right..
    ant..

    What brand of headset? You might be able to look up the instructions online.

    BTW, who sold you a Specialized without assembling it first? I thought doing that was a no-no.

    Fox Talas RL, i bought the bike in the box at a the BS while i was out of town... the box was opened by me and the manager ,we took everything out to make sure it was all there.. boxed back up and i was on my way. when i got home i was putting it together and ran into a jam with the fork install..not sure where the metal shims go ..on the top or bottom? i know where the carbon shims or spacers go its the thin metal one in question.. what i need is a part breakdown picture of that fork being installed in the bike tube..

    Adam, your headset is not a Fox Talus RL. That would be your fork.

    Is your bike a full-suspension, FSR Stumpjumper Elite? I looked that model up on Specialized's webisite. The specs say "Campy style cartridge bearings for integrated alloy HT", suggesting that you have a no-name, generic headset of some sort. Nothing wrong w/that, but I wouldn't know where to find instructions for it.

    You might though, find the exploded diagram on the following, Cane Creek page to be helpful:

    http://www.canecreek.com/tech-headsets?view=manual

    I run Cane Creek S-3 headsets on several of my bikes. The S-3 has a thin, metal shim called a "shim seal". It sits immediately above the compression ring. In my case, working down from the top, I have: top-cap, spacers, top-cover, shim seal, compression ring, bearing.

    Bear in mind that what is true for a Cane Creek headset may not be true for what you have. But if I had to hazard a guess, I would put your thin, metal shim on top of the compression ring.

    p.s. I recall reading somewhere that the purpose of that metal shim is to allow for some margin for error in the facing of headtubes.
