• I'm trying to get my old (90s) MTB back on the road. I can't figure out how to get this O-ring to stay in the headset; it seems there's no way to stop it getting it squeezed out when I tighten it up. Any ideas?? There's a channel in the headset where it looks like the O-ring should be happy to sit, but it won't stay in. Perhaps for this design of headset seal to work, the threads on the steerer tube have to be a bit shorter?

    I'm sure I'll be fine without it for a while but I would like to get it fixed at some point.
