Convert my CK Headset from 1.5" to 1 1/8"?
I’ve got a 1.5″ CK headset which I’m running with (obviously!) 1.5″ forks. Thing is that I’ve got a nice set of 1 1/8″ forks I’d like to try but I don’t want to have to buy another headset. Can you buy anything like a converter sleeve which would mean the 1 1/8″ forks fit into the 1.5″ headset?
I don’t want to change the headset because I’m planning swapping back and forth between the forks to get a feel for the differences before I make my mind up.
I can sort of imagine what I’d need but can’t find anything on the internet. Any help would be fantastic.Posted 6 years ago
that takes care of the bottom, and I am sure that they do a simular thing for the top.

I’m a bit confused by those hope ones. Are they just adaptors, if so would they just plug straight into my CK headset? Is that what you use Neil?
Thanks for the help so far by the way. I’m popping out for a couple of hours so if I don’t reply then it’s not because I’m not grateful!Posted 6 years ago
yep, i use a hope headset with both a tapered fork and a 1 1/8th fork. I have an adaptor the fits into the lower cup and it lets me swap over the forks.
you will need to get a hope headset to run the hope adaptors.
stick with the king you have got and get the new top/bottom races and your set.
