Another forkin' question
Another in Rainman's continuing series of "Doesn't this guy ever do anything NORMAL?" questions.
Fubar's fork thread reminded me of an issue I was pondering a couple of months ago. My commuter, which started life as a hybrid, has a suspension fork. I guess it is OK for the urban streets I commute on, but I really don't think I need it anymore. I would like to go with a steel touring fork since I need cantilever bosses and holes for fender mounting. The problem is that my hybrid's head tube is sized for 1 1/8 inch steerer tube and the forks I see all have 1 inch steerer tubes.
Does anyone know of touring type forks with 1 1/8 inch steerer tubes or threadless headsets that will fit a 1 inch steerer tube in the larger head tube?
If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
