    i think you need a threadless headset. ritchey and orign8 offer press in versions for one inch headtubes at around 20-50 bucks.

    Cane Creek does as well. I used one on my conversion and it works great. I think it was about $30.

    You did not get a 9/8" fork and want to replace an 1.0" fork with it, did you?

    the threadless fork also has to have a 1" steerer tube, not 1.125" ..
