- Tapered fork in non-tapered head tube (again, probably) ?
Some say yes, some say no.
I’ve gotten a little too excited and got my hands on a nearly-new pair of forks to go on a 2003 Stiffee.
Only in the aftermath have I realised the steerer is tapered (in my defence, I started looking at new front wheels as I’m going to have to replace that too because of the dropouts).
I know there’s special bottom race things you can get from Hope, Superstar & Cane Creek but I’ve no idea which if any would be suitable?
Time for a new frame or new forks? 😥Posted 4 years agoratherbeintobagoSubscriber
Cane creek EC44/40. Needs the bore to be 1 1/8 and will work to go with a 1 5 tapered steerer
That’s incorrect, I’m afraid. The two letters are the cup type (in this case external), the first two numbers the headtube internal diameter and the last two numbers the steerer external diameter – see here.
For a 1?” HT to take a 1.5″ steerer, you’d need an EC34/40 cup, which isn’t going to work.Posted 4 years ago
