    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.
    No lugs, no care.

    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.
