    headset with rubber compression ring

    My Dahon Cadenza has a funny looking headset
    The big black bit is a rubbery compression tube which fits on top of an integrated cup and cone loose ball arrangement.
    How much compression do I need on the top nut? Does the rubber ring make fine adjustment unnecessary? Any tips welcome.

    Looks like a common threadless headset.. to me. ask Thor.
    he is a Dahon Dealer and posts here occasionally

    or wait and see if he finds this post.

    How much? presupposes using a standard unit of measure ,
    do you have a torque wrench?

    then the dialog can be in numbers. rather than adverbs.

    adjusts like a normal threadless. only an extra step to set the stem height. tighten to eliminate play, then set stem height and lock it down
