    cheap 1 1/4 thread-set?

    All I can find is King for $100+; this if for my mtb converted to cargo / beach bike. I know I can shim it down to 1in but would rather keep the fork.

    suggestions on where to get an 1 1/4 threaded headset?

    You're located in MTB Mecca...... start calling shops that have been around for 15 years or so. I'm sure some of them might have some new, old stock they'd love to get rid of.

    Another thought, 1 1/4" headsets were very popular with tandems. If you find a shop that deals with them or maybe run a few web searches, it may point you in the right direction.

    Bike Tools Etc has Dia Compe 1-1/4" threadless headsets in black or silver for $70. Look here:

    Great ideas man, thanks for thinking for me; I did check at the bike coops but didn't think about a shop having one tucked away and also will hone in on some Tandem places.

    A 1-1/4" THREADED headset? I didn't think anyone ever made them.

    I have two YST's in 1 1/4", one is new. E-mail me and we can work something out.
