Looking for a set of suspension forks to fit my 93 cannondale m600 which has an oversize 1 1/4 steerer.

Rockshox, Manaitou or whatever with a threaded 160mm steerer.

Bought a set of NOS Rockshox Quadra 5 off the big bay which had a 200mm steerer, thought I'd be able to make them fit but alas no can do, so they will be up for grabs if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the reply cchris2lou, they would be perfect if the steerer was a bit longer, but 160mm is the minimum I can get away with as its going onto a medium Cannondale frame.

If I recall arn't the steerers interchangeable on the manitou forks, if so if someone came up with a longer 1 1/4 steerer I would be interested.

Cheers

John

How much do you want for the steerer threaded version posted?

Could you check the measurement of the unthreaded part of the steerer and the threaded section so I can make sure it fits.

Cheers

John
