    stretched haedtube diameter

    my foes zigzag has a stretched headtube! its weird, its only at the bottom in the front, and a little bit egg shaped. only noticeable when i am looking at my frame closely with the bearing cup in. i removed the bearing cup today and sure enough it wanted to come out towards the front more. will brent repair this (im like 45 mins from pasadena), or is it ok for now. it doesnt rock at all, and it doesnt creak.

    that's pretty hard to fix. It usually happens when you run your headset loose, or you case a jump.

    Try shimming it with a beer can.
