GT Mountainbike headset


Recommended Posts

I have a GT Avalanche 2.0 MTB, and the headset is loose... Is there a way that I can tighten it? Do I need special tools or should I just take it to a shop so they can sort it out...?

If it is still OK, then:

loosen the stem bolts

Tighten the thingy on the top of the steerer tube untill the headset is tight enough

Finaly retighten the Stem bolts.


all done. Oh yes make sure the bars are strait.
