. Nothing wrong with FSA per se , they just like to be set up just so.

That is one way of describing really shit manufacturing tolerances  ;D

The fun and games you are having made me think, just how old is my CdF? Turns out, it only appears in the 2015 range, priced at £2,500. I must have bought mine in 2016, for less ££. It looks like in 2016 they went titanium (with another £500 on the cost) - I have to say that the SS is my favourite of the two. I'm still not looking forward to changing the BB ;)  I suspect that given its more cosseted existence, it probably won't be as bad - which is just as well as I suspect it must be near eol

Ok, everything's off (stem cut) finally.  Headset (sealed cartridge bearing) cleaned and reassembled.

Have to work out whether I can salvage the 105 Hydraulic brake calipers/shifters - no experience with these.
