logic being that Shimano does not manufacture two different cranks for Italian/English.
My steel bike that I converted to SS has the traditional quill stem with threaded fork. I have never ever been able to tighten the locknut on the headset without it coming loose and needing another tightening which is not that convenient when the headset wrench is needed.Anyone else have this problem? Is it just a weakness of the threaded headset design or have I got a dud. It has been like this since new back in 1995.
are you using two wrenches? I do mine with a headset wrench and a gigantic crescent wrench. It tends to hold for many months now.
What is between the locknut and the top race? There must be a spacer or other fitting (brake stop, etc.) or it won't stay tight.
there is a reflector.
That's pretty common. Have you tried removing the stem from the steerer and tightening the headset?
