After a couple rides I wanted to see if any loose marbles were flying around reeking havoc on my fork so I pulled the bike apart.
Low and behold some steel balls came out with some minor scratches on the stem...nothing big but definitely could become worse if I kept riding for a while without checking it.
So, I went down to the Home Depot and purchased some plumbers foam (found it in the cleaning supply area). Pulled everything off and threw some foam in the top tubes (where the stem inserts) and the seat post area. Now, I'm good!
I love the bike, and shouldn't had been so lazy and foamed before I put everything together the first time.
