Because of the more delicate nature of carbon, setting a traditional star nut into the steerer tube is no longer an option. This is where a steerer tube expander, or compression plug, comes in handy. Need a steerer tube expander for yourself?
Inertia Brakes are rated at 5.5 bar. Consult pages 14 and 22 for clutch and brake speci fications. A Low Inertia model 114 Brake produc es 2435 Nm x 0.75 = 1826Nm selection torque at 5.5 bar. However, the bore capacity is 4.125 inches. This application requires a 5 inch bore. Therefore, a Low Inertia 118 is to be investigat ed.
brake pads. This should allow the expander tube to relax from its compressed state, drawing in fluid (but hopefully no air) from the line. Top up the "master cylinder" of the fluid drawn into the expander tube either "from the bottom" or from the top and replace (and tighten) the "filler cap".
