Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

1" threadless fork users

Tried searching, but I couldn't find any answers.
I got a Soma Rush" fork I was wondering how people set up their headset and stems. Do you just use a shim on top of the spacers? Sorry I'm clueless right now.

Yes. Spacers, then shim+stem. Or a 1" stem (which have become somewhat rare).

You have a 1 1/8 stem? Is that what the shim is for?

Just clarifying... as I have no shims... 1in fork, 1in spacers, 1in stem.

1" stems are harder to come by or maybe I'm not looking hard enough. It's been easy to find 1 1/8" stems so with the shim I can just look for any threadless stem.
