Dodgy stem..

Not open for further replies.


Hi all, Ive got a threaded headset on my bike and have never needed to adjust the height of the
stem until recently when ive found it had come out a bit too far (due to some agressive riding me
thinks :p) I loosened the bolt in the top, greased the sides then worked its way back in again...
but when I tightened the bolt in the top again, its still moves quite easily side to side
independant of the wheel...

Ive just read how to adjust it properly with tapping the bolt first to free the nut inside, so i
will know next time.. just wondering what is the best thing to do now to make it tight again as the
bolt wont go any tighter in the top! Thanks, Ben
