I am having issues getting my headset tight enough to remove lateral movement but still be able to steer freely.
When I put the bike together I noticed that the current race had a small dig in it and was also cut (could have been like it when new, can't remember). Being a no thread / compression bung virgin I was not sure if this would be an issue or not, so just threw it all together.
Now I am thinking that I should have replaced it as I can't get the correct torque on the compression without affecting the steering.
Do the baseplates need to be perfect or am I barking up the wrong tree ?
Also will any baseplate do if I need to replace ? the headset is a Salsa version
