Take it to a good bike shop to get it fitted. Moots head tubes are very tight-Lardlovers headtube split on his Moots and it was $$$$$ to repair. You also need special anti gaul when fitting Ti to Ti or it will weld itself together.

BTW, If you have no use for that Crank Brothers headset let me know and I will buy it.

I used to work just down from there at St Ann's Quay, lovingly remembered as 'Satan's Key'!

... Cant believe we went through two diamond diamond blades in the petrol 12inch grinder :shock: :shock:

That old wrench was handy for bashing the new one in though, and I'm pleased you brought some washy to help get it in , I'd clean ran out... :lol: :lol:
