Thanks AnkleWork, but it is definitely not the cables, they are not that tight and after messing around with the headset the effect has been lessened :)

Ah a name for the issue - no wonder I couldn't find it with my googling! Thanks, I took the fork out and put it back and it seems to have gone away now :) I will get a new headset though anyway.

ah, I had misunderstood, thanks for clarifying. I don't notice any pad rub so I think that is out. Guess a bulge in the tyre is a possibility.

Thanks

The tyre wear was on the top of the tyre, so don't think it would be from brake pads. I checked my mudguard and there is no shiny bit.

The rubbing was against a bit of duct tape, and I could hear...

Ok thanks, I guess I can just reuse the old crow race then. However if I were to require a headset replacement in the future - would any old headset that is 1 1/8" or 1 1/2" compatible do?
