Jur ???

As per my last post i'm ready to order a Ti Swift from Titan but (a) I need to see the plans in order to be able to specify the changes I want to make and also (b) Jur talked about issues with the headset and riser in posts #139 & #202 but I haven't yet been able to figure out how that setup applies a preload to the headset. There's no mention of an expansion plug which would normally be used to apply pressure to a stem & spacer stack. In post #202 he talks about using the PS Adjustable Spacer to tension the headset after tightening the riser clamps and then removing the PSAS after doing that which, as I understand what I think is happening, would remove all the preload on the headset. I know i'm missing something but I have no idea what.

Anyone know how to get in touch with Jurien? I'd be eternally grateful.
