Description of Schmolke Carbon Ahead Cap

Lots of weight savings for the money!
Schmolke have developed a special plug to be used with fork tubes. No need to carry the heavy expander-mechanism all the time. You’ll save up to 30 g. Just fit the Schmolke ahead plug instead, it is designed to support the fork tube where it is most sensitive to pressure from the ahead stem.
Adjust headset as usual. Tighten the stem bolts and remove the adjusting mechanism. Now loosen the upper bolt only, and fit the carbon plug, insert the tubular part into the fork tube and tighten the upper bolt again. If you need to readjust the headset at a later time simply, undo the bolts, take the plug out, fit the heavy mechanism again and proceed as usual. After adjustment replace the heavy mechanism with Schmolke's plug, keep the heavy part in your toolbox, not on your bike.

Notes: Some carbon fibre forks feature an oval steerer tube section. Measure the diameter at different places and choose the average figure. Please keep in mind that the inside diameter of the tube will be reduced by 0.1 mm when the stem is fitted. Most of the time you do not need the o-ring, the plug will be held securely in place by the stem’s clamping force. If ovality is to much you may use a standard metal file to remove material on opposing sides to fit the cap to the oval inner section of the tube.
The plugs are made of two parts, which are glued together. While this construction is sufficiently strong Schmolke still recommend solve always both stem bolts before pulling them out of the steerer with care, if possible while rotating them at the same time.
