    Fixed gear Leeds. For some unknown reason they prefer to use that awful facebook than this perfectly good forum..

    Both of ya'll needed to use the face book. That's where most the Leeds folks hangout... @CaveMan & @Ethel

    It's as @Joeboat describes, teeth end up.

    I think it's actually just a fat steerer, literally had to get a 1">11/8" adapter and a 1" stem and hammer them down to get it all compressed and when it's all snug I've left steerer 1mm too long. So it's now a job for the morning.

    If only, I'm quite familiar with the headset, this is definitely something else.

    Installing my 1" carbon forks and the steerer seemed a very very tight fit when fitting stem and spacers before cutting. I didn't think much of it, come time to cut and fit, I cannot get the little plastic compression ring on the headset to sit in. I've been trying to sand the ring to see if it'll help push it down any further with no joy.

    Well confused, the only conclusion I can make is the steerer is slightly wider than 1"?

    It's an easton 1" ec90 aero with a campag record threadless.

    Also, on the cheese front, anyone tried Tyne Chease? It's the best I've tried...

    Would, but I'm not in London. Keen to try it out, flaky vegan open times won't put us off ;)

    No, I just meant generally. They've moved it to Gmex apparantly. Never knew about a summer one. Is that still going ahead?

    No beer festival this year though was there? In my experience, the dealers got all the £40(yes there were some) track frames before they opened to the public, but I've not been since 2013.
