If you're doing pressed in ones, then it's worthwhile looking at the steerer swap sticky.

This is where you'd become everyones best freind :wink:

Yeah i have one, a floor standing 10 ton one at work very very handy :wink:

I will now go and trawl through all the steerer tube swap thread pages and see what i come up with, might even look into rockshox and other makes too see what i can help out with!

I will bump this thread every now and again to see if any more intrest comes from it.

Depends if you can fit a new steerer if the crown is of the type that allows such.
Otherwise no i wouldnt recommend it. Given the nature of any injury incurred by hitting the ground chin first from pressing out then pressing in a longer one in the hope that it doesnt all go pear shaped.
However, you can find another fork in knackered condition and swop the steerer and crown over in one go.
If it is the crown with the bolts on the back then just about any steerer will do as long as the diameter is the same and 9.5/10 it is :? RST steerers fit straight off the ball.

Need to let (us) know if yout crown and steerer is bolted on and if the crown itself blots onto the legs. The length of the one you have and the length you need or can go to at a stretch :?.

I suggest the wanted section once you know what you have and what exactly is needed. :)
