I've thought it a good idea to try and flip my stem, putting it all back together, I've noticed head set and fork are not sitting too flush, can't remember if it was like this before I fucked around with things or not.
Should the head set and fork in photos be more flush with frame?
Looks fine to me
I don't think you'll be getting the moving parts any closer together than that without overtightening things. Looks fine as is.
One more pic for peace of mind, cheers for quick feedback.
I did think if parts get closer they'll start rubbing.
As long as there's no play (rocking when front brake only is applied) and it still turns freely then it should be good. Tighten the stem cap bolt first, to get the bearings loaded correctly to get to this point, then the stem bolts to hold the bars straight.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
