    Goblin Headset Issue

    Does anyone know any details about the headset that comes on the Goblin? I have alot of movement within the headset(holding front brake the headset moves within the frame) I broke it down and I THINK the problem is the plastic washer/insert that sits in the top bearing is cracked and allowing movement. Need to know that part number and where to purchase if possible. Sorry if my terms are not correct. Pretty new to the MB community. Goblin Headset Issue-20160429_205804.jpg

    Did you loosen the stem and then tighten down the top cap? Those rings usually have a split in them they close up as they are compressed in the headset.

    Is the bike new or does it have some miles on it?

    Ive tightened down the top cap as tight as I could get it. The bike may have 50 miles on it.

    Got it figured out, one of the headset spacers had rolled under the workbench and I reassembled with out it. I changed the stem height and didnt reinstall the "lost" spacer. Once I got the additional spacer in it cinched down correctly.
