Well done.
Kind of a hell of an ask, given biggest ive ever seen was 300mm. That must hark back to the days of giant headtube days. But good on Sven cycles anyway, hope this all goes well for you.
Thanks.. Will all be worth it when I finally get my Pace forks fitted!

I might be able to help there if it falls through...

I have some 450mm 1-1/8" ahead steel steerer tubes, and can cut the groove and fit a clip easily enough.

All the best,

Wow, thank you! As, I've set the ball in motion, I will get the final details from Sven Cycles and if, for any reason, they fall through I'll definitely take you up on your kind offer.

Haha, nice one. Yeah, although it won't be for everyone, I love it! I replaced all cables, cleaned and greased the bearings etc when I bought it and it goes well - the standard suspension is the only real letdown to the ride, so once that's fixed, (aside from cleaning up the headset) I have no further plans at the moment.... although I'm always open to suggestions..

The missus will sooner take a sneaky ride on my motorbike than get on a mini moto!

Well I reckon with the Pace forks on there's not really anything else to do there.Just ride it n mind your head I guess.Great you got a steerer sorted,somehow don't think you'll be having the same issue with the seatpost!
Can't be too many out there,I'm sure it'll get a few grins from rider and passers by.😁

True! I'm having the opposite problem with my seatpost... its at its very lowest limit! I am high up so tough trails will be hairy but it's perfect for easy trails and rides along the canal. People do get out of the way sharpish, and it brings a grin to my face, at least, every time I ride it 😁
