what steerer length would you need for a set of 1&1/4" forks? i have a set of Orange rigid forks with a 140mm threaded steerer which are no use to me. i measured the steerer wronglt. twit i am!

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

hhmmm...19" frame? think you are correct steerer will be too short,dont make the mistake that i did and forget to add on a bit for the headset!

That's the other problem with 1 1/4" would need that too.. and a stem :lol:

All decisions depend on the frame though and how long it needs to be :D

i can get 1&1/4" threaded headsets from a bikeshop near me for about £10 new think they are RST?YST? something like that not "bling" but work fine. i also have a Zoom stem that is (i think) 135mm and of course 1&1/4" quill. no good to me now,i have a purple ATAC!
could do a deal with those as well as the forks if they will fit your frame.
