another question - will bearings 'splay' out in a race when compressed?
When you compress a threaded headset using loose ball bearings, will the bearings compress out correctly - along the edges of the race, or is there a chance the bearings might 'double up', and not all of them be along the edge of the race? I can just picture it now, going down a hill and suddenly the fork becomes loose because the bearing moved where it's supposed to be. :-O
