Headset Loose? post #1
Hey guys i'm not that new to bmx but i do struggle working on my bike. Yesterday i painted my forks and i'm trying to put bike back together and when i place headset back on and stem / bars i go to ride and it still feels loose after re tightening everything i still have this problem when i push on bars and wobble forward and back / side to side the steerer tube feels like it is loose inside my head tube on my frame and is really annoying! I know probably isn't a huge problem but it's usually my mates doing it so i would like to work it out myself.
thanks Jake

read this, it shows how to put a headset together the right way:

i have made this mistake before too, putting the bearings in the wrong way. that leads to a loose headset, which quickly turns into a ruined headset and then a ruined frame!
