He peeps, from what I can remember, these require a reduction spacer to fit a 1 1/8th headset!?! Any idea what size reduction is required?

I've searched t'interweb in vain and the frame is currently 300 miles away in storage so I can't exactly measure it easily.

Cheers,

Will

I reckon, it probably is a 1" 1/8 and I must have offered a 1" up to it by accident. I'll get it measured, I think that'll be the most obvious solution! lol

Cheers,

Will

It is hard to see from just looking :?

they started bringing in the 1"1/8 in the 90's but there some that stayed 1" and some that you think would be 1" that are 1"1/8 :shock:

so the best is to measure if you gonna buy a stem :lol:

my money would be 1"1/8


sorry if i'm not much help :oops: :lol:

cheers B :wink:
