The forks are made for the Klein press fit bearing headset which would mean I would have to put a reset racing headset in to take modern forks which I feel takes away the clean simple oversize Klein headset. But I would say these forks can still cut it with today's forks. I have an adroit koi with these forks and I did a race on these forks and they cut the mustard.

Thanks andy
