Any stem options for 1 1/4 threadless fork - Shimmed 1.5, maybe?
I've got a cool old mtb with a 1 1/4 threadless fork that I'm cleaning up. I'd like to keep the original fork, but obviously the stem selection is pretty thin. I was wondering if I could shim a 1.5 stem or maybe an early Headshock stem down. I don't know how much bigger those headshock steerer tubes were, but I'm open to options as long as I can keep the original fork.
