as above really.

my newest build has left my steerer a bit short.

i think i can change the steerer at a push, but the extension option is about a third of the cost.

i would appreciate your opinions and experiences cheers guys.

Not to hi-jack the thread, but will this kinda thing work? http://www.wiggle.co.uk/bbb-bhp-22-steerer-tube-extender/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=base&utm_campaign=uk&utm_content=BBB-BBB_BHP-22_Steerer_Tube_Extender-Silver

Brought a bobike mini + aheadset clamp and by the time i get it fitted right the steerer is about 10-12mm below the top of the stem :?

i was thinking about one of these http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/bbb-ahea ... 21879.html
its bound to be heavier, but it would be invisible. and i like the idea of the insertion over the put over type.

just looks like a handy bit for the box. my long term plan is to replace the steerer on my z1's. but i need to get it out and make sure the replacements are compatable.
