Right,so I am looking for a uni-klein fork for my new frame which is 20"c-t,now on a klein manual I found it says a 20" frame needs a 120mm steerer,I have measured the headtube on my frame and its 175mm,which klein calls it a 22" frame(179mm steerer length)
Before I start looking or buying a fork,I really need to know what it is I am actually looking for! :?
Should I just go by the headtube/steerer length and forget everything else.

Yes, go by the head tube length. That's the only way to get the correct MC1 size.

O.k thanks,there are a set of mag21s in the frame how do you get them out? I don't want to start wacking things with a hammer,is it like a normal ahead set in that there is usually a tapered Oring that grips the steerer tube,normally forks start to move out with a tap and then push the forks back up,to reveal the tapered locking Oring.
