Hi folks, I'm having trouble with movement on the headset on my new carbon fibre frame (import from china) I've slacked off the bolts on the stem and tightened up the crown cap (plug as carbon steerer) but there's still movement when I rock it on the front brake. There is plenty of gap for the crown to pull up the fork (it doesn't bottom out on the top of the steerer tube)
There seems to be play in either the bearing in the cup (which is stuck in the frame) or the carbon steerer tube in the bearing (or maybe both)
Has anyone got any advice on how to solve this? I've heard of some people using epoxy resin glue to site the bearing more firmly in the cup for instance although I'm a bit reluctant to do this as I fear it'll never come out again.
Am I just missing something here?
Costello tapered headset if it helps (bottom bearing seems sound enough too)
Any help greatly appreciated! I just want to get on it and get riding but this needs correcting first! The rest of the build went swimmingly!
