Honestly, I rather tight with tools than any kind of slop. First, creaky crown races are a thing but also I’ve seen crown races just ravage steerer tubes when they get stretched (hence my initial concern). Going back to slip races, that’s another reason to consider them actually. I have an old FSA split ring that still fits tight whereas I’ve replaced a number of King and CaneCreek crown races that have gotten loose (from multiple installs) and started to make noise.
