Hi guys, hopefully you can shed some light on this please, I purchased a set of which I thought were 1" non threaded steererTime forks for a project which has the old standard 1" head tube, when the forks arrived i immediately noticed the integrated crown race is 1 1/8" and the steerer is 1",obviously they won't fit my bike which is hugely disappointing, but I've never seen a 1 1/8" to a 1" steerer, they are not tapered neither, were they made for a special frame or something, or am I missing something?,see uploaded image, thanks guys

Never come across that before. However you can get 1"-1 1/8" steerer shims, so you can still shim the top. Obviously the shim needs to be long enough to go all the way down below the upper headset stack!

I've never seen that either. Would be good for you to see one in situ on a Time frame to see how they've worked it

They are probably from a dedicated time frame and fork combination with a hidden headset, the race looks like it is designed to fit the sort of sealed bearing that would sit directly into the headtube. I wouldn't be surprised if time had a proprietary 1 1/8" to 1" tapered design at some point

Exactly what foz says, i had a pair of time made forks on a different brands frame that were exactly like this.

You were basically stuck using the frame and fork together for ever.
