    Lefty DLR2 - stem won't tighten

    Hey everyone,

    I had my Lefty DLR2 sent back to Cannondale through a local bike store and the uppers were replaced with the Push-button lockout system. When I brought it home, I took it for a test ride and almost wiped out as the stem was not tightened properly. I tightened it, but cannot get it properly tightened to not spin around. Would it be possible to shim it?

    Really disappointed in the LBS, but it is two hours away and I would rather not drive back.

    Thanks,

    -Christian

    Did you tighten the clamps on the fork too, or just the stem bolts?

    The lefty has a pinch bolt at the top and at the bottom of the headtube that secures it to the steerer tube.
