If you have to ask about adjusting the brakes then it’s probably too much bike for youI'm looking at getting the 4C but I'm scared of the set up. When you say you had to adjust the calipers, what do you mean? Is it easy? Do I need special tools? Also does the bike come with sealant for tubeless or did you have to get that yourself?
And the level links. Did you have to disassemble all the pivots and reassemble? Any issues with alignment as has been reported with the aluminum releases?

I believe I have a 125 lev from my 2018 M 5C that I'd be willing to trade. I'll check this evening, PM me if still interested.Anyone willing to trade their 125mm KS LEV (new or lightly used) from a small or medium release for my 150mm KS LEV (which is very lightly used and in perfect condition) dropper post?
Took the headset back apart, intentionally this time, and looks like I am missing # 1 and 3, unless they are somehow fused together or lodged within the headset cover. I looked all over the garage and no missing parts laying around. I don't see anything that looks like it has gotten stuck to the headset cover :madman:Here is an exploded view of a typical headset, this one in particular is used on the 5C/4C (FSA No.57).

First let me start by saying, this happens to the best of us.
I'm going to point out the part by number in the drawing to indicate in what parts you may have dropped.
Lets start with the bottom cup, the only thing that will fall out is the bearing (#8), so if you got that back in your good.
Top cup, you likely dropped the headset cover (#2), 2 seals (#1 & 3) and possibly the compression ring (#4) and bearing (#5), if you got all those parts back in your good.
Glad to hear the linkage disassembly/assembly went well, it can be a bugger for some folks. If you ever have any issues/concerns, I've posted a document to show how it should be performed that I worked with DB creating, to assist riders. :thumbsup:
There is a rubber gasket in the underside of the headset cover, but as best as I could tell it seems like it is all one piece. When I put the headset back together this way everything went together well and there is no play at all so I am assuming it all went together correctly!Is there a rubber gasket around parts 1&3? If so that should be what your looking for.
Don't recall how many spacers it came with sorry.

Yup. My aluminum Release is having issues every ride. I'll be switching to a bolt instead of the QR.Anyone have trouble with their rear axle coming loose? Mine's come loose 3 or 4 times now. Threads seem fine, and I've always used a torque wrench to tighten it to 10Nm.
I'm trying blue loctite this time around.
