so i know a good amount about bikes... or at least i think i do.... but i got a new set of forks sent to me because after getting my bike sent to me i noticed the welds looked really bad. so i was putting on the new forks and put my spacers all back on and the head set back on and tightened it all down and now i get a squeak and the forks are really stiff. i have pulled it apart and put it all back like twelve times.... im stuck now.... any ideas? i need help!
