    threadless headset adjustment problems


    Seem to be having trouble getting the slack out of the steering. I have tried to adjust the headset but not having any luck getting the slack out. The bike is a 2012 Bianchi Infintio with less than 500 miles. Trouble started when I installed a new FSA stem today. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    is the new stem the exact same height on the steerer? If not the top cap might just be bottoming out on the top of the steerer, and a thin spacer under it should fix the problem.
    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    58 it figured out. I'm used to a start nut adjuster but my Bianchi has a FSA Compressor Adjuster. I found my answer here:

    Thanks again!
