    Headset compression device for carbon steerer tubes - what's that?

    I read the accessories price list of the Finnish Ibis importer and it lists a following item:

    "Headset compression device for carbon steerer tubes"

    What kind of device is that? Does anybody have it? Is it essential for installing the headset on Mojo?

    Only needed for forks with carbon steerers, like the older World Cup Sids and Reba's. Also used on all carbon road forks. You shouldn't need one.
