To the OP, as asked define "play". Are you sure it's the right headset for that bike? Looks like an Internal / Zero Stack headset, so which Orbit did you buy? You should have bought either the OrbitZ 1, ZR or ZS. However that frame might take an integrated headset which uses no cups, the bearings just go straight into the frame, so some clarification is necessary before we can give you help.fred3 said:Define "play". As in after the fork/stem installed?
You really couldn't take the time to correct "orbea" to "orbit"? I mean the "e" is nowhere near the "i" and the "a" is nowhere near the "t". lazy, lazy, lazy. For shame.
Are the bearings in the right cups? Is your starnut moving up the steerer when you tighten? Stem tight? The steerer will move until you have it all together and tight....nj0ywatch1np0rn said:i purchased the Z1, when i drop the bearings in, the bearings just move around in the headtube where the bearing is suppose to sit resulting in play. I can move the fork's steertube like a joystick almost. Hope this clarifies my problem. It's on rather tight so any help would be great.
Well there's your problem...the starnut should NOT move when you tighten the screw in the topcap. It seems your starnut did not "seat" properly. You'll need to have a new one installed in your steerer or try it yourself (can be tedious without the tool).nj0ywatch1np0rn said:and the starnut does move up as i tighten it.
