Broke me steerer on the crosser today and started to muse about the contributing factors.
I wonder what difference it being 1" rather than 1"1/8 made?
The front end suffered from really bad brake judder. I wonder if this plus the above, plus aluminium steerer made any odds?
My basic knowledge of materials science says the answer to both of these is a kind of qualified yes but I'm happy to be corrected.
Any hoo the upshot is this.
