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)

chris king devolution.

but really,
sell the 1" fork and get a proper 1.125 fork such as a forte. i may consider a reynolds ouzo pro in a 1" if you want to sell.

I believe you are looking for what's called a "headset reducer," which is basically a shim. Or you could look at reducer headsets, but those are likely to be expensive.

Please speak better English.
