    i thought the devolution was to use as an adapter for a different size frame so you can use an 1 1/8 fork. i could be wrong though...

    first off, that's definitely not an angus.

    second off, that's definitely a duraace headset.

    third off, i am wicked confused.

    just emailed him and this is what he said...



    "tony mistakenly sent me a threaded 1" fork (for the angus) instead of the 1 1/8" threadless. he offered to swap it out but i had a NOS dura-ace 1" headset and installed with a headset reducer. the straight fork looked better to me, didn't really change the geometry at all, and i could use a quill stem for that classic look .."

    i think it's a sox thing. seems like all of the bosox fans i know around here (which is actually missouri, but whatever) use wicked a lot.

    back on topic though, why doesn't someone just email the dude and see what the hell's going on there? i'd do it myself, but i don't want people to know how much time i spend sitting on bikeforums talking about other people's bikes.

    edit - someone actually did it. well played.

    I spoke with the owner as well. I'm sure he received plenty of questions and had a stock answer.

    I wonder if there is any play in the fork at all?
