Steerer Tube Swap Shop - shorter for longer! NO SALES!

The long and short of it is this - us taller, ganglier gents are crying out for steerers and clamps to restore our leggy steeds, only to find at every turn, they have been butchered, buggered and reduced!

This thread is now the OFFICIAL STEERER KARMA EXCHANGE area - when you have a steerer and clamp you are about to cut down, check with us willowy-types for a perfect swap.... in return you receive a thousand karma points! :cool: :cool:

Simply post up here that you are about to cut down say, a Manitou 1 and ask here whether there are any to swap that may be closer to the length you require, then exchange!! Suddenly us giraffes will be able to ride again instead of being forced into extinction...

You know it makes sense Rodders!

Bloody good idea fella. Before anyone cuts down any a-head P2's, i've got some here that are useless to me. I'll post steerer length tonight but they're around 200mm (maybe) - they won't fit a 19inch kona but anything less & I reckon your laughing... :D

I had planned to - once the concept had been generally accepted...

Second scant. . .
Great Idea. . .
Would dearly love to help, but all mine are about 100mm now. . . I kept the bits I cut off though so maybe you can stick em all back together. :?:
