Getting used to the new bike now, enough to notice little things. Going slow, when I get lightly on the front brakes, I feel a tick from the front end. It is play in the front fork bearings. Not much, just enough to notice. I know I need to adjust it, but how, and how quickly could this become a big problem?

Dave I have the same symptom on my bike, it turned out the rotors are free floating and are held in place by wave washers there is just alittle play in the washers but this is normal.

yeah it's just the wave washers you can imitate the sound by applying your front brakes and rocking your front wheel back and forth.

Thanks all, was hoping it was not another thing I have to fix... Yeah Bobbychet, that is when I notice it most, stopped or real slow, front brake <tick> and feel a slight, almost imperceptible bump...
