    1" fork 1 1/8" Headset

    Hi, hope someone who knows more about bikes than me can help!
    I have just accidentally bought a 2nd hand 1" full carbon fork. My frame is a carbon 1 1/8".
    Is there any way I can marry the two?
    Could I just buy a different headset?
    Or is there a shim I could buy?
    Thanks, help needed!

    If the headtube uses a traditional HS rather than integrated,the are reducing bushings that allow use of a 1" HS in a 11/8" HT. If your frame uses a Campy hiddenset HS, it can swing either way.

    Apologies, should have said originally.
    My fork is for a non integrated headset.
    I currently only have the frame for my bike (hence buying the fork.)
    It is a Trek 5500. I can, therefore buy pretty much any headset I need.
    Do you know where i can buy the bits I'll need?
    Thanks again.

    Well yeah, you can buy any 1" threadless HS,but you also need the reducing bushings.

    Special order catalogue at www.harriscyclery.com That don't mean they can't be had cheaper elsewhere,but you gotta do the legwork.
