machinning of frame,fork and stem(for of threadless headset) is performed for every headset or fork installation.

The headset of the bicycle consists of two sets of bearings rolling between two sets of races, at the top and bottom of the head tube. To work well, these bearing races must be aligned to one another and to the fork steering column so the only load they are getting is the way the were designed to be used.
During manufacturing, the welding may cause the head tube to become warped and deformed.or paint can make contact surfaces of headtube warped 9(not squared or flat),ewen if it was fine before painting. It is then necessary to re-machine the head tube faces(where top an bottom races are pressed),stem(for threadless fork) and the fork's crown(where the crown race is pressed).
