Anyone else have problems with this? I just finished building my first super-low-budget singlespeed bike and during my first real ride on it, the headset started to loosen up after about 1.5 hours.
See here for bike pics:
$50 SS build is complete!.........kinda
I may have just not had it tight enough, but I am wondering if I should expect this to continue, due to me being 6'3" 215 lbs (without gear) and riding this full rigid over small jumps and stuff (under 2 ft), but mostly mild to moderate XC. I have since borrowed some proper headset wrenches and mashed that top nut as tight as I could get it turned onto the bottom one.
So, what do you guys think? Will it be fine if I keep it super tight, or does Clyde + Rigid = Broken Bike?
