headset help.

Does anyone know the cheapest way to run a 1" threaded fork on a newer frame with a 1 1/8" head tube. I know chris king makes a headset that allows this but it's $150 or so.

but i heard from someone there is a really cheap adapter kit ($8 or so) that will do the same thing with your exsisting headset.

Thanks!

Problem Solvers makes em, they retail for about 18 bucks.



Any bike shop with a QBP account should be able to order you one, (the part number is HD9901). Its called a Headtube adapter.

I thought those were for 1.5 to 1 1/8" only.
