Headset play... slight fork jiggle
Sorry, I'm trying to describe it the best I can..
I took apart my headset today on my new bike and when I put it back together the spacers, and other pieces didn't quite fit all back Perfectly, so I did my best to get it all back right.
Now there's a very very slight amount of play in the headset so that the fork moves a little bit. Every part is on correctly and tightened, but I just couldn't get the top part of the headset to fit in snugly, so there's a little space there causing the jiggle in the fork.
Is it safe to ride like this or should I take my bike back to the LBS and have them adjust it for me before riding?
