Technomic stem doesn't fit fork
My long Nitto Technomic stem doesn't go deep enough into the steerer tube of a mid-70s Fuji Allegro. Did manufacturers thicken the lower portion of 1-inch steerers tubes back in the day? The tube's length, I would guess, is about 200 mm, more or less.
Thing is, the stem fits my current 1-inch fork just fine. Of course, I'll use it if need be. It's just that I'd hate to get rid of the frame's original fork.
Is there a way out?
