Don't forget finding the 9sp shifter after giving away your 10sp driveline!Didn’t officially confess this here the other day...
Doing that glory build for the young local lad last weekend. @Plankosaurus frame came with 1.5 headset. Knocked out top only and banged in a 1 1/8, and thought I’d use a crown race adapter on bottom with the boxxers. Nope, it’s for sealed bearings, headset is caged. Knocked it out and fitted 1 1/8 lower.
Spent 40 minutes wondering why I couldn’t get the play out of the bottom. Tighten a slight bit more, it binds. Slacken off, it’s got play.
Checked numerous times that all the parts are in the correct way, everything seems right.
Clearly the headset is munted.
Let me just check that it’s the right crown race for this headset....
Wait...where’s the crown race?
Oh, there it is, on the ground next to the removed 1.5 headset.
Fit race, check bike is perfect, and promptly facepalm myself with a very greasy hand.
