hoping your retro brains can help me... I have an inch quarter steerer tube and am looking for old retro forks to match the frame, I know i can get a king headset that fits an inch eight fork into the inch quarter steerer tube but can you get one that would fit an inch steerer? thus dropping two 'sizes' and letting me use inch forks?

Anybody know?

basically no. king dont make a 1.25 to 1inch headset. how about some headset inserts to take the frame from 1.25 to 1.125, then use a devo headset from 1.125 to 1inch?
I use headset reducer headsets on 2 different bikes & I've never had an issue.

scant, managed to source x2 inch eight forks over the weekend for my x2 retro builds. The amp will fit perfectly but the manitou 2's in the funk will need a devo king down one size. I had found an inch fork for it and was pretty sure there was a way to 'bodge' it down two sizes. Thanks for confirming. My next decision is to decide if the fork should be painted to match the funk frame... hmmmm. will wait till i have them both side by side.

hows tricks ?
