    And make sure you know whether it's 1" or 1 1/8". (Outer diameter of the steerer tube). Both exist AFAIK. Apparently, there is also some variation in the internal diameter, which determines what stem you can use with it.

    I guess you can just take a tape measure to your current fork to see how long a steerer you'll need. (assuming that frame and HS will be the same). A longer steerer can be cut to fit, I presume (?), so just make sure it's not too short. Then a caliper tells you the other 2 sizes.

    i would. take it and make sure the dimensions are the same. when i replaced my fork, i had my old one for comparison, and i think it helped a lot.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    how about the inches of threaded and the inches where it isn't threaded. THe one I am currently look at is 6 3/8 inches in length, 2 1/4 inches of thread

    just measuring my headtube...it looks to be 5-3/4inches without taking the fork out...seems like the one I'm looking at will definately be too big huh?
