    Smoothie Mixer w/straight steer tube.

    I have a very, very small amount of wiggle (play) that I cannot seem to eliminate. I have tightened the top cap to the point where I think it's too much yet the bars still turn freely and still I can't get rid of it. I am using an On One stem with carbon spacers.

    Anyone else had this problem? I am a bit frustrated.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like you do not have enough spacers. I am willing to bet that your fork tube is too high, try a very slim spacer and it should bring it up a bit. Should be about 1/8th of a inch or so ..

    Problem solved! I added 5mm of spacing and that cured it.

    Much obliged!
