Times 2 if you are talking about reducing for stem and not headset.

Reducing for headset. i.e. fit 1 1/8" (oversized) headset in to a 1 1/4" (evolution) frame

Well if the headset comes with them, saves me looking for one of them as well :lol:

BetD, will have a look around that site, a name I've seen crop up but never ventured to.

Looking at options first, it depends if tI decide to go down this road as it's easier than looking for forks (or MAG/Judy steerer) and headset and stem.


Also changed title from headset to headtube as that what it really is.
It would be a headset expanding shim :lol:
:oops:

I'll tell you when I get the frame, most likely longer than that as steerers are always too short for me :lol:
You may know actually, Orange 'O' 19" Centre to Top
