Pros

  • Allows Easy Fork Install
  • Quality Construction

Cons

  • Can Slip A Bit

Best Uses

  • Road Biking

Comments about FSA Compressor Expander Plug and Top Cap:

As mentioned above when installing a fork the expanded plug can slip in the steerer tube. Degrease and try again if it does. Mine worked well after. Instructions do specify for road use only and so far so good on my commutor.

An Advance Over Star Nuts

By JD Of NSC

from Boston, MA

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Easy To Install
  • Easy to remove

Cons

  • Star Nuts Are Free

Best Uses

  • Any 1 18 Fork

Comments about FSA Compressor Expander Plug and Top Cap:

The FSA compression plug is so more elegant than a star nut as you can remove it easily should you want to recut your steerer tube. This permits you you to cut the tube a little long at first to experiment so you know the exact length you need. Also, if you upgrade the fork you can remove it and re-use it. Anyone who has trouble installing this plug is out of their league for doing fork installations, it is simple but you need some mechanical aptitude. Getting it snug enough was easier if you use the T-handle type of allen wrench but not essential. I use these even on alloy steer tubes because they are removable and easy to install.

  • No movement
  • Strong

  • Not Visually Pretty
  • Plain Boring

Best Uses

  • Downnhill

Comments about FSA Compressor Expander Plug and Top Cap:

The FSA headset is a great product with not movement and tough design, it is easy to take out and clean and then put back in. The only problem so to say is that it has no style, it looks boring and plain.

Wish they included some instructions.

Pros

    Cons

    • Lack of instruction

    Best Uses

    • Road bike fork

    Comments about FSA Compressor Expander Plug and Top Cap:

    FSA does not include instructions nor are they available on their site so it took a bit of searching online and taking the thing apart to figure out the basic of it. It's actually 2 parts in one. The compressor part with it's own bolt and the top cap.

    I'm still unable to get tight enough to bind the fork so I'm unsure how much preload you can actually get on this.

    If FSA would just put instructions online with as far as installation depth of the compressor and torque ratings that would help a lot.
