Good afternoon people i have a quick question regarding my brand new still not ridden Felt ar2.
recieved bike this week and on close inspection i noticed that the top headset bearing was visible by a good 1mm above the headtube. Is this normal? I was always under the impression everything should be flush. Any help is gladly appreciated cheers. By the way everything appears tight and theres no play evident.

This is normal for the bike. I had this confirmed by Super Dave when I built mine last year.

ok so everything is as it should be Super Dave has confirmed and sent me fsa drawings of headset. Felt allow up to 3.5mm above headtube. All that development in the wind tunnel to get aero and then have the clean lines disturbed in a critical area ?
proof will be in the riding i guess, now for a dry day to try it out,( could be a while) cheers people.
