    RST vs SASO MEKKEM Carbon

    Anyone out there have any experience installing the RST or SASO MEKKEM Carbon Fiber Recumbent 20" fork to a Downtube9 bike? The RST is available with a threaded steering tube but the SASO only comes threadless. I can change the headset but how do I keep the fork in place? Thanks in advance, Don, San Francisco

    If this is for a pre-2011 Downtube 9, then you could also consider the Zoom available directly from the Downtube website:

    Hi Joseph,

    When I measured the zoom fork steering tube in the downtube9 I have now it was 1 1/8. Did they change in 2011?
