Odd Kahlkoff Headset Design , How to adjust ?

Hi Folks ,

Kahlkoff insist on doing things their own way with headsets .

index=1

Has any body got any idea how to tighten up / adjust the one in the video ?

It does not have the usual top nut , star nut set up as seen on threadless headsets . It seems to be tightened by screwing the notched part of the assembly just above the frame against the stem but I can't budge it as there are no faces for a wrench to catch on . Is there a special tool ?

Thanks for any ideas ,

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

When you asked the people at Kahlkoff, what did they say? Just curious.

Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.
