    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.
