Planet X fork wiggle.
#1
Hello all!! I'm hoping that someone can provide me some advice on how to fix my current problem. I'm working on a build; Planet X SL Carbon frame and Headset, Easton EA90 SLX wheels, Easton EC90 Handlebars/Seatpost, and SRAM Force Groupo. Now the problem is that i'm working on putting together the fork and headset and I can't for the life of me figure out why I have some wiggle in this area. Meaning if I grab the handlebars I can wiggle the fork forward and back. It's not much but I have another bike and their is no wiggle room. I ensured that the headset was sitting flush both top and bottom. How can I fix this? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Ok I figured it out. I didn't have enough space for the headest cap to compress the whole assembly.......Duh
