Hello to all! First of all sorry about my English.

I'm 'trying' my 1st build of a bike... It is an Inbred 29er frame. But I'm struggling with the headset.

I managed to install the crown race into the fork and the bearings in the hrame. But even after tightening up the star nut I get a huge play between low bearings and the crown race.

It seems to me that both should fit, I mean to make click one into the other but that seems impossible to achieve. I even took out the botton bearings from the frame and tried to make them fit with the crown race in the fork but I could not get it.

Any idea what am I doing wrong???

Sorted out!!! Problem was spacers above the stem. It seems there was not enough room between upper spacer and steerer tube, so using a bigger one the distance increased between them and pre-load was transmitted correctly down to the spacers.

Thanks a lot!!!
