after weeks of searching for a threaded 1 1/8" steerer for my Pace RC36 Proclass forks, i decided to bite the bullet and get on from Pace.

the robbing gits charged me £29 including postage.

I tried to haggle but, they were having none of it!

anyway, rant over.

i must admit, i feel a bit better for getting it off my chest :wink:

true i had to pay the same for an 1 1/4" steerer tube i would have thought yours would have been cheaper as 1 1/8" is still the norm

Is £29 really that bad? A new steerer from any manufacturer will cost you that much, and usually you have to send your forks off to get it fitted as well.
I agree that if its second hand then thats another matter but a threaded steerer has probably been in storage for a long while.
Oh well, Pace sorted me out pretty good when I sent my fork in for bushing replacement.

wanted to get one for my RC35 from the German distributor two years ago and they asked something like £60!! so i got a damaged steel fork from the LBS for free, cut off the steerer and machined a groove into the lower end for the snap ring. worked well :)
