    Head set seems loose

    The head set on my Kona seems to be a bit loose. I know how to take the stem out, but I don't see any way to tighten the bearings down a little. Are there nuts under the smooth covers?

    I won't over tighten, I just want the slack gone before it sets the balls into the race.

    loosen the stem bolt ... tighten the cap bolt til its tight but not binding (move bars back and forth til it feels right) then tighten the stem bolt

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me
