So my '06 Specialized Roubaix is having some headset issues. I kept trying to readjust it, but it would never get to a reasonably loose, yet tight point. Well, It turns out the expansion nut inside of my steering tube is slipping upwards as I'm trying to tighten down the headset.
I can make it go back down in the steering tube by slightly tapping it back in, but I can't get it to slip up and out to replace it/put some carbon paste on it. Even with the bolt taken all the way out, I can't seem to get it to budge or come apart.
So I'm looking for some tips to get this thing out of there. The bike is barely rideable with a loose headset.
