 Post subject: Carbon Headset spacers
PostPosted: Fri Jul 04, 2003 10:05 pm 
Does anyone know how strong carbon headset spacers are compared to regular ones? I am thinking of putting some on my MTB but I'm not sure.

Carbon spacers are not very pressure-resistant, they tend to compress when you tighten the starnut. After some time play might develop in your steerer and you have to re-adjust your stem again.
