Anybody got a steerer crown for Manitou (2's)?
I need a 1"1/8 diameter, preferably at least 6.5" long. Can thread if unthreaded.
Thanks! :D

(adamgent, you WERE right about the '93 kona headsets by the way! :oops: )

Thanks, I am already watching that one. I thought I would try and support "local trade" if you know what I mean!

5" is ok - my first thought was for my old kona but I could use them on the Fisher instead. I'll still take the crown if you want to part with it.
Thanks!

I've never bought one before so not sure. Buying a new crown is a whole lot cheaper than buying a new bike with a 1" headset!!!
One on the bay is less than $12 with 2 days to go. Probably go for about $20?
But if you can save me the US-UK shipping? I'll offer you £15 + UK postage?

DOH!!! I can't even measure correctly - I need a 1"1/4 steerer not 1"1/8 for the Fisher :oops: SORRY! Will still take the 1"1/8 off you for the Kona though!
