    Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums.

    I'm moving this post from General Cycling to Bike Mechanics forum. Carry on...

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    I assume you got one of these two frames.

    Ribble Winter/Audax 525 Frame, Frames, FRAMES AUDAX / WINTER
    Ribble Winter/Audax 7005 Frame, Frames, FRAMES AUDAX / WINTER

    I'm surprised Ribble doesn't do a little better job with hyperlinking compatible components.

    Do you have a set of calipers? Measure the headtube diameter (headset seat), and that should help with the headset selection.

    Photos?

    Is your headset close? How close? Many headsets are press-fit.
