How To: Install Niner’s YAWYD Bottle Cap Steerer Tube Mount

Niner recently told us they’re working on adding tech videos for their bikes and components, which takes full advantage of hiring Ian Hylands and the massive studio they’ve put together (more on that in another post) in their satellite office. Just for fun, and to get a little practice before diving into the really techy stuff, they made this video showing how to properly install and use their YAWYD bottle cap mount for your steerer tube.

They needed a “tech” video for that? wow.

What does turn it to the left mean? I consider myself mechanically competent, but can’t make heads or tails of turning bolts left or right. It’s even more confusing because when you use a T-handled hex like in the video, one end of the grip goes left, and the other goes right! Please dumb down these videos more for me. I don’t understand.

Point missed.

If you do not know what “lefty loosey” means, this might be too complicated of a procedure for you.

Chris #1 has great taste. Chris #2 is… a little “strange”.

I was never going to buy one but George and Cubby completely convinced me. Well done, boys.

I mean Mark….whoops.

Even as simple as this is, there is no mention of headset preload.

Deez - 10/22/13 - 11:47pm

Preload eh, Derz? I didn’t see him loosen the stem.

The instructions weren’t clear enough. Bike got caught in the ceiling fan, where did I go wrong?

Throwing a Schwinn-Topcap away is NOT acceptable!!!

Too bad they can’t put some r&d into figuring out a way to get their small parts to Canada without spending double the item cost on shipping.
