    does anyone press out steerer tubes? i am wondering if it is possible to remove a 1.5inch steerer and put a 1 1/8th in or do i need to sell my forks?

    Wouldn’t the hole be 1/8″ too big?

    nope it would be 0.375 inches too big. but i was thinking maybe a spacer could be made to work? or would a tapered steerer go straight in?

    You’d probably have to buy new uppers with a steerer already bonded in. I wouldn’t risk a re fitted steerer failing.

    Problem would probably be getting thing on a press to press it out. Can imagine that the steerer tube goes into the crown before the legs. And I bet they don’t sell the steerer tube on its own.

    Lennon was wrong….infact all you need is . . .
